I don't think any of the librarians "proof read APA reference pages only."  We typically refer students to the many APA citation examples posted by the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University:

https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/06/

The examples there cover the most frequently cited sources (journal articles, books, book chapters) and many more.  The librarians are more likely needed when a source just does not quite conform to the usual rules, and a citation must be constructed that follows the APA format as closely as possible.

Your professor may have been thinking of Eleanor Johnson, the librarian who works most frequently with students in Social Work.  You could contact her for an appointment via the library contact page.  The Purdue OWL site usually resolves most questions, but Eleanor may also offer some assistance.

I think that the Writing Center will review references as well as a full paper.  You may contact them for an appointment as well.
