Free webinar: Re-opening the Library

As the local authorities or institutions in charge of libraries are making decisions for staged reopening, Texas Digital Library has invited libraries that remained open during the COVID-19 pandemic to lead a panel discussion on strategies, techniques, and lessons learned to keep their staff and customers safe. 

This forward-looking discussion will be focused on future strategies to assist libraries in staged reopening.

Date: Thursday, May 7, 2020
