Practically every public library has had to master digital storytime in a hurry. But there’s much more that socially distanced programming can do to fight isolation, connect communities, support harried parents, and help patrons with their fundamental information needs—whether they are looking for a new job, seeking reliable health information to make the best decisions, or need a pandemic project like learning a craft or a new language.
Some traditional library offerings easily translate to a virtual environment to meet the needs of some patrons, while others require more adaptation. In this timely course, you’ll find out how leading libraries have pivoted to meet their communities’ changing needs. You’ll learn best practices for running a digital event, tackling essential services like workforce training and student support, and offering asynchronous programs like storywalks and scavenger hunts.
