About

In 2020, libraries pivoted. 

We delivered resources to meet new community demands. 

We promoted services, which could be seamlessly modified to virtual events.   

We overcame barriers to provide programming to every patron, of every background, and nearly every need. 

Learning from the Pandemic: Mechanics of Post-Pandemic Programming is a toolkit for every library and every staff member who delivers programming. We define programming as: “Planning and presenting cultural and community programs on behalf of the library” (American Library Association). This resource takes a trauma-informed approach to enhance services to patrons and communities most affected by the pandemic.
