Library Staffing in the "New Normal" of Post-COVID - Amigos Community Conversations Event
This event is free and open to Amigos Library Services members.
Join us on July 13, 2021 for the first Amigos Community Conversations event and discuss with other Amigos members about how library staffing will change, or stay the same, as we enter the post-pandemic era. Lisa Wells and Barbara Glackin will facilitate a dialogue that will provide attendees with strategies and information on how they can plan for new staffing levels at their libraries.
