Free Panel Discussion: Libraries in Unprecedented Times: Before, During, and After the Pandemic
As all our libraries work our way through the current pandemic, I wanted to draw your attention to a FREE upcoming virtual panel discussion I’ll be participating in on July 28th, 4:00 p.m. EST. Signing up will get you priority access to the live event, as well as an email to the recorded discussion. Details are below.
In March, libraries were planning for the end of the school year and summer reading when growing understanding of the risks of the novel coronavirus forced most to shut down. It was suddenly even more clear that libraries are at the very heart of their communities.
Should libraries have been prepared for this? How can they live out their missions with the doors closed? As libraries look toward reopening, how does the future look different?
Please join Libraries Unlimited authors Kristin Grabarek, Noah Lenstra, Nick Tanzi, and Sara K. Zettervall as they discuss these big-picture questions about the recent past, present, and future of public libraries during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moderated by senior acquisitions editor Jessica Gribble, it’s sure to be a lively and thought-provoking conversation, and there will be plenty of time for comments and questions. Bring a friend!
