My set up isn’t as fun as the children’s librarians have but since the week we closed I’ve been; hosting 2 – 3 virtual programs a week, meeting with branch staff to keep us all connected, talking to community members to see how we can stay connected and providing services, making masks to share with local food pantries, helping my daughter do online school, and more recently helping our local mutual aid group with dispatch. I’ve also been working with our state library association create and maintain a database of library reopening plans so we can share information about safe ways to provide library services in a pandemic.

Librarians and library staff never stopped working, we just moved it all online.
