Responding when COVID comes to your Library:  Learning from Real Stories

Despite best efforts and planning, your library may be faced with the reality of a positive COVID exposure.  Hear from three public libraries on how they responded when they were confronted with a positive case situation.  How had they pre-planned?  How did they handle the challenge?  How did the Director and Board work and communicate with staff, health department, government officials, and the public?  What tips, lessons learned, and insight do they have?

Presenters:

Alissa Williams, Library Director, Morton Public Library, Illinois
William Shorter, Jr, Chairman, Board of Trustees, Anne Arundel County Public Library, Maryland
Skip Auld, Chief Executive Officer, Anne Arundel County Public Library, Maryland
Amanda B. Jackson, Library Director, Chesapeake Public Library, Virginia

This webinar is presented by the Chapter Relations Office and United for Libraries.
