    Colleagues,    There is a FREE conference sponsored via SJSU that might interest you.

    "Reinventing Libraries for a Post-COVID World," Library 2.021 Conference, Jun 17, 12-3pm PDT

     From a quick overview of the agenda, it seems aimed at public libraries, in our case the Base and Post Libraries.   However, anything we can learn from our past year is valuable to libraries over all.  It seems you can pick and choose when the links are not an all day affair.

    "Reinventing Libraries for a Post-COVID World," Library 2.021 Conference, Jun 17, 12-3pm PDT


    Our second Library 2.021 mini-conference: "Reinventing Libraries for a Post-COVID World," will be held online (and for free) on Thursday, June 17th, 2021.

    In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, librarians have been faced with all manner of challenges as they have worked to bring their service, resources, and events into the virtual realm. Unsurprisingly, librarians have not only met this challenge but thrived in bringing new dynamic digital content, engaging virtual programming and instructional events, and exciting online such as virtual book clubs, gaming tournaments, and even makerspace activities to their patrons. Please join us as we discuss the ways librarians have adapted and evolved their service offerings for a post COVID world.

    This event is being organized in partnership with Ellyssa Kroski, the Director of Information Technology and Marketing at the New York Law Institute as well as an award-winning editor and author of 60 books.

    This is a free event, being held live online and also recorded.
    to attend live and/or to receive the recording links afterward.
    Please also join this Library 2.0 network to be kept updated on this and future events. 

    Everyone is invited to participate in our Library 2.0 conference events, which are designed to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among information professionals worldwide. Each three-hour event consists of a keynote panel, 10-15 crowd-sourced thirty-minute presentations, and a closing 30-minute keynote. A mini-conference FAQ (frequently asked questions) page is here
