Pivoting during the Pandemic: Ideas for Serving Your Community Anytime, Anywhere

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

Sharing lessons learned and barriers overcome, this book will spur you towards new ways of serving your patrons during unprecedented times.

When the pandemic suddenly forced many public libraries to close their doors or limit patron access, library staff redoubled their efforts to serve their communities in every way possible. Demonstrating their resilience by quickly pivoting to new modes of service, public libraries are continuing to offer innovative yet practical ways to connect patrons to the information and services they need and enjoy. Offering real-life examples of what it means to be a 24/7 library, this collection from the Public Library Association (PLA) and ALA Editions shares how several libraries transitioned to virtual and socially-distanced services. No matter your library’s current situation or outlook for the future, you’ll be inspired to adapt their ideas to suit the needs of your own organization. Among the initiatives and topics explored are

  • homebound delivery;
  • citizen science programs;
  • virtual reference advice;
  • services to small businesses;
  • remote readers' advisory and book chats;
  • early literacy storytimes;
  • health services outreach;
  • tech guidance for patrons;
  • wifi hotspot lending; and
  • tips for social media and marketing.
