Virtual Planning

Virtual programming is here to stay. Asynchronous (on-demand) and synchronous (live) programs break regional barriers and allow library users to participate from anywhere around the world. 

The benefits of virtual programming are: 

  • Live programs provide human interaction without human contact;
  • Live programs in webinar format can be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing; 
  • Live programs that utilize Zoom can also live stream via Facebook or Youtube;
  • On-demand programs can be made accessible via library websites for library users to view anytime;
  • On-demand programs can be prerecorded individually or in batches without the pressure of a live audience; and
  • Supply kits for either type of program can be picked up from the library at the library users leisure.
