Public Libraries Interest Group Meeting (4/24/20)

Meeting Information

**This meeting will now be held ONLINE due to the current restrictions on travel.  

Gather with your Public Libraries colleagues to share how you and your libraries are meeting the challenges of offering services virtually during the COVID-19 crisis.  This will be a great time to not only get ideas, but also to receive and offer moral support for this strange time.  We hope to see you there!

Interest Group Facilitator:  Jeremy Yates


I consider myself a visual storyteller and digital media specialist/enthusiast. My Bachelor's degrees are in English (Writing), Fine Art, and Digital Media (3D Animation) though I've dabbled in web design, video production, and more. I just love the different ways humans communicate and express themselves and I love to experiment with different media myself. Before I found myself in the library world, I worked mainly in graphic design and marketing (designing logos and mascots). Working at a small, rural library, though, I tend to wear a lot of hats. So while my main focus right now is programming, grants, and community partnerships, I am also tasked with doing all the marketing/publicity for the library system and I also do a fair bit of outreach. If I've ever visited your library (while attending a NEFLIN workshop), I've probably taken examples of your brochures and fliers with me. I get a lot of great programming and design ideas that way! It's also been great to meet so many talented and passionate people. One of my favorite things about NEFLIN are the Interest Groups. That's probably why I agreed to facilitate the Makerspace Interest Group a few years ago. Currently, I'm the Public Libraries Interest Group facilitator. I look forward to the discussions we'll have about the profession we all love!

Cost: NEFLIN Interest Groups are free of charge and are open to NEFLIN members only.  Registration is strongly encouraged.

A reminder and access information will be sent out one week before the meeting and one day before the meeting.  Please email register@neflin.org if you do not receive your access information.
