Seeking: Virtual Library Programs for ALA Book

ALA’s Public Programs Office is compiling a collection of virtual library programs to share in a forthcoming book from ALA Editions.

What virtual program has worked well at your library? Please tell them about it in this brief survey by Friday, July 3!


With COVID-19, many libraries were thrown into uncharted terrain when it came to programming. And so — as libraries do — they quickly innovated, coming up with a vast array of virtual programs in a short time. Some were twists on old favorites while others were brand new concepts. 

A few important notes:

  • All library types are welcome!

  • ALA would love to hear about multiple virtual programs held at your library, but please fill out a separate survey for each program.

  • Virtual programs held at any time are acceptable; they are not restricting submissions to those offered during the pandemic.

  • If your program is featured in their book, you will be acknowledged in the publication.

Looking for some examples of virtual library programs? Here are a few from their website:
