Library Communication Strategies for COVID-19 and Beyond - Webinar (05/21/20)

Libraries are operating during an especially challenging time right now. Most libraries have closed due to the impacts of COVID-19. Like many other organizations, libraries had to close quickly, shift to a remote working model without much lead time, and pivot to offering “virtual” and remote services and programs. Throughout this process, libraries have had to communicate with customers and other audiences in new and different ways. Now, faced with the potential to reopen, libraries must shift their strategies yet again, while facing potential funding cuts as the result of an uncertain economy.

In this webinar, we will discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on how we communicate, what we have learned thus far, and how we can apply that going forward. We will also discuss communications strategies for reopening libraries, and how we can become more nimble and prepared for future potential disruptions.
