Public Libraries Respond to COVID-19: National Survey Results

On-Demand
Webinar
More than 2,500 public libraries responded to the broadest national survey of public library responses to the COVID-19 pandemic March 24–April 1.

More than 2,500 public libraries responded to the broadest national survey of public library responses to the COVID-19 pandemic March 24–April 1. What did we learn about closures, services, and staffing that can help libraries understand how their peers are responding to the current crisis and plan for future recovery? How are organizations like PLA and ALA using this data, and what could you do with it? Because the landscape is changing so quickly, PLA plans to conduct another survey about this topic.

Facilitators:
Linda Hofschire, Director, Library Research Service, Colorado State Library
Kolleen Taylor, Library Director, Bertha Bartlett Public Library, Story City, IA
Emily Plagman, PLA Manager, Impact and Advocacy
