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?
Watch as Libraries Unlimited authors Kristin Grabarek, Noah Lenstra, Nick Tanzi, and Sara K. Zettervall 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 a lively and thought-provoking conversation!
