Engaging Online Community Members
January 26, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Virtual programming is here to stay. For individuals who are homebound, have caregiving responsibilities, or uncertain transportation, online engagement with the library is a good option. It allows them to learn, grow, and connect without the burden of visiting a physical location. As librarians, we should be intentional about our work with these community members and focus energy on finding new ways to engage with them.
- Attendees will be able to identify community members who benefit from virtual programming.
- Attendees will be able to list specific strategies for engaging community members who benefit from online programs.
- Attendees will be able to discuss their next steps for engaging online community members.
