Derivation of words

Where does the word "Librólogo" come from, please? Is it a play on the word Librero/a?

Hola Garry

The word "librólogo" (or "librología") isn't in the dictionary. I imagine you saw it in the text from the website mentioned by the end of our text. I believe it's a made-up word, making reference to people who "study/deals with" books, the same way we have words like "astrólogo" (astrología), "filólogo" (filología), "podólogo" (podología) ... 

Here's a bit of info about the origin of these words using the sufix -logía

La clínica vs el consultorio

¿Sería el mismo decir "la clínica de libros" como "el consultorio de libros"? ¿Son sinónimos?

Hola Marco

Sí, clínica y consultorio son sinónimos. Se puede decir "consultorio de libros" o "clínica de libros". (Bear in mind though that this is a made up term for this new type of service)
