Presented by AASL, ACRL, PLA, and the Chapter Relations and Public Programs offices with support from United for Libraries.

Join us for insight and discussion with leaders from state, public, academic, and school libraries on the continued efforts and strategies to reopen library facilities across the country. Attendees will benefit from hearing about preliminary results from the recent national “Libraries Respond: COVID-19 Survey,” and have the opportunity to ask questions and compare and contrast planning and guidance across the range of library types to inform your own robust planning and services responses.
