amy crowe
01:00:39
we had a ton of sick people already coming in so that kinda pushed us to close
Lisa Gresham
01:00:50
We really need guidance on when it is safe to handle materials and what safety measures staff should be taking. We'd like to offer curbside holds pickup, but are looking for official guidelines - either from ALA/PLA or CDC or local health governance - to guide us in developing safe handling procedures.
Tina Jazaeridezfully
01:01:14
We offer emedias services but our bookdrop and obviously are library has been closed till furthur notice.
Kirsten Pearson
01:01:26
The schools closing pushed our closing too.
amy crowe
01:01:30
with schools being closed till April 24th we are just kinda going week by week right now.
Michele Robinson
01:01:41
Will libraries sanitize the books and other materials before reopening?
Diane Gurman
01:01:45
Question for group & panelists: what do you think about libraries that are diverting print budgets for the rest of the fiscal year to e-resources? (for closed libraries)
Lisa Shirley

Francisco Miranda
01:02:15
The Field Library is currently closed until April 13th. We are located in Westchester County, New York (which has among the highest number of COVID-19 infections in NY)

LAPL just said we will do that — just eresources
Linda Smith
01:02:18
We closed our doors to the public the evening of 3/13, since the school district closed. I was still working in the library to do admin work. After Cuomo started the 100% pause I started working from home. Were closed until further notice.
Francisco Miranda
01:02:26
All Westchester County Libraries are closed.
Terri Foster
01:02:27
There were no cases in our area, but the state shut down all libraries to the public on Mar. 13, and we were told to shut down completely Mar. 19. I can only go in once a week to check the building and get anything I need for essential reomote operations.
Amanda Birro
01:02:31
how are we going to sanitize/clean the books without damaging them? we can't exactly wipe down every page. hard covers are easy to clean but paperbacks not so much
Rebecca Schnizler
01:02:33
Henrico County PL Richmond VA Closed beginning March 16, indefinitely. All book drops are closed. All staff working from home and all bldgs are closed to everyone

Sasha Hoffman
01:02:40
I’m with Montgomery County PL in Maryland. We’ve been closed for week and a half. Now closed another 4 (till April 24th) and our book drops have been closed for about a few days. We’re all "teleworking"
Christina Hinds
01:02:53
We closed out library to the public on Tuesday March 17 as directed by our city. Staff were told to not come into work as of Monday March 23.. There has been no indication as to when we will reopen.

Francisco Miranda
01:03:00
Digital services are available to our patrons such as Overdrive, Kanopy and Hoopla
Rebecca Schnizler
01:03:01
The first few days managers went and emptied book dropsbut now they are closed
Alice Baptiste
01:03:16
is it suggested that returned books be quanratined for 48 hours before being indivduallly wiped and then checked in for reshelving
Annemarie KD
01:03:22
well said! these times are highlighting the strength of cooperation and interdependence over competition!
Rebecca Schnizler
01:03:28
digital services available, online Storytime and perhaps book clubs
Sarah Scott
01:03:28
I'm curious whether any libraries are ramping up work on digital equity. With the closure of our buildings, I am concerned about the many patrons who rely on the library for computer and internet access.
Tina Jazaeridezfully
01:03:56
We are teleworking from home and an idea is interesting that every morning we have hangout meet its a cool app since we all get to see eachother at least before we all start our teleworking its cool
Victoria Kowanetz
01:03:57
Queens Public Library closed March 16th. Book drops are closed. Now we're trying to implement virtual programming for our customers
Thea Hart
01:04:04
I'm also concerned about digital equity and curious how folks are addressing that.
Jo Shepherd
01:04:17
@SarahScott totally agree!!! We have a lot of work to do on this problem!
Betsy King
01:04:21
We closed to the public March 16. Staff reported to work March 17, but all SLPL libraries (16) have been closed since then. Originally it was through April 4 but our mayor has enacted a stay-at-home mandate through April 22.
Terri Foster
01:04:29
OH, someone said they were putting items in a bed bug oven. DONT!!!!!! That will ruin your books. The advisory I've received is to quarantine books for 3 days, and the virus will die on its own!
Deborah Brewer
01:04:38
agree with Thea Hart's comment
Lisa Shirley
01:04:46
We gave several of our wifi hotspots to people with no internet and the ones who had them checked out don't have to return them until we open with no fines.
Darla Komora
01:04:49
closed to the public the same day the schools closed, on March 17. Mansfield/Richland a County Public Library of Mansfield, Ohio.
Kelly Raddatz
01:04:51
Last day was 3/1. WI Safer at Home "ends" 4/24. Town and the library director decided to close. 1st week we went into the closed library, book drops closed and have remained closed. On 2nd week working remotely.
Terri Foster
01:04:58
Handle books with gloves when you first take them in.
Francisco Miranda
01:04:58
The Field Library is also engaging our community through social media by offering online resources and links to virtual tours of museums, zoos and parks.
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:05:17
For those asking about materials handling: Per a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine released on March 17th, coronavirus was detectable for up to 24 hours on cardboard and 72 hours on plastic. (Will link in a second). Something I'm seeing in our state is people beginning to quarantining returned materials for 72 hours before handling to save wipes and cleaning supplies. Staff who move the materials to quarantine should absolutely still practice best hand hygiene practices
Rebecca Schnizler
01:05:18
totally applaud the proactive nature of Ohio governor
Kelly Raddatz
01:05:19
correction 3/14 for last day
Alice Baptiste
01:05:22
doing virtual storytime is a big hit
Rebecca Ryan
01:05:33
NYPL closed before the schools did, which was kind of surprising.
Laura Keyes-Kaplafka
01:05:39
@Terri Foster is correct - virus will die on its own. Or, spray plastic book & media covers with Virex (sp?) Maybe Virux?
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:05:43
Here’s a link to a summary of the study on the NIH web site: https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/new-coronavirus-stable-hours-surfaces
Laura Keyes-Kaplafka
01:05:44
It's a commercial cleaner
Katie Murphy
01:05:45
Since recent information says that the virus can live up to 72 hours on surfaces, from now on when we empty the bookdrop, are wearing gloves, then placing all returned items in a bin labeled with the day of their return. We will check in the bins 3 days after the day of the week they are labeled with.
Rosalind Kutler
01:05:54
Digital services are available through Library. Local companies offering free hotspots for 90 days. City is reaching out to people who are homeless or marginally housed to provide hotspots.
Francisco Miranda
01:05:55

Jenifer Phillips

I wonder if we will see permanent changes to library service from this?
Rosanne North-Jack
01:07:38
We just shut down curbside service after a week as of yesterday.
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:07:39
I am really hoping that we will see some interesting work around phone services and programming and libraries to help address digital divide issues
Lisa Shirley
01:07:43
Tarrytown isn't allowed to make any purchases except health-related supplies.
Katie Murphy
01:07:52
Is anyone finding a way to get books, magazines or dvd's to people who don't have access to online resources?
Donna Speakman
01:07:55
NCC Delaware has public wifi that people can access from the parking lots. We have a link that any one with a Delaware residence/address can sign up for a online library card that will allow them access to ebooks, emagazines, eaudiobooks, and other eservices. Once we do re-open, then the patrons can continue using their ecard or have it updated to a physical card where they can check out physical materials in addition to the eservices that they have been using while we are closed.

As of today all she staff will be payed to April 6, our first tentative return date. The date will probably be extended, in light of the COVID19 situation.
Alicia Rodriguez
01:26:52
our mc's "library pages" are being encouraged to take webinars and other training that our training office has offered.
Axel Fust
01:26:55
thankfully my library is allowing us to work from home from provided devices. Pages are using ipads to check email and are doing webinars like this, book reviews, podcasts, and reading development books
Amber Allen
01:26:58
We have been having daily meetings with most of the full-time staff, and we are working on having meetings with ALL of the staff just to lessen the loneliness and help to get us all on the same page. Our Director wanted to "see" us all to keep us all in the loop, and socialize with each other some during this stressful time.
Amber Allen
01:27:05
We use Google Hangouts!
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:27:05
I am very grateful that last week Mississippi passed expedited legislation giving counties, municipalities, and government subdivisions (so all the way public libraries in our state are funded) the ability to send all staff- exempt and nonexempt- home with full pay and no leave required
Tina Jazaeridezfully
01:27:07
I think all of us should dress nice and put makeup on just feel that everything will get better and if we work from home we will feel happy about yourself.
Estel Porras
01:27:10
I feel that we're essential, unfortunately our city manager doesn't feel the same.😁
Tyler Johnson
01:27:19
@Beth Borene -- I also work for Everett Public Library. Our pages are doing things like professional training & checking in with supervisors about what they are working on. We are providing a lengthy Ryan Dowd homelessness training series that all staff (including pages) are completing from home.
Rosanne North-Jack
01:27:21
I'm having Outlook and skype meetings with my staff.
Susan McCormack
01:27:24
Ossining also lent all workers devices so they can work from home - all staff FT and PT
Alicia Rodriguez
01:27:37
Our LAPL admin had a survey before our shut down to ask if staff needed a laptop or had wifi access.
Genny Carter
01:27:38
@Richard We've already had one library in our region that has been asked to cut next year's budget 3% - like all county departments .
Emily Cannaverde
01:27:40
I'm so thankful for all these comments with ideas of things that we can do for our community that everyone is sharing. We are a very rural, small library. We already struggled with social media and programming, and now it's taking some major brainstorming to get through this!
Julie Sisson
01:27:49
We pages are doing a variety of online trainings, like the Librarian's Guide to Homelessness and lots of other great ways to improve our skills.
Rosanne North-Jack
01:27:51
Thinking ahead, how do you think this will impact Summer Reading? Has anyone thought ahead to Summer Reading? We're moving forward with the original plan but won't be able to promote in the schools now that everyone is closed.
Emerald Culmer-Royster
01:27:53
Not everyone has a home situation where makeup and dressing nice is ideal right now. But great idea, nonetheless
Yesianne Ramirez
01:28:24
@alicia Madison Public Library is doing the same
Sarah Scott
01:28:58
At my library, Microsoft Teams has been enabled for all staff. However, we are being asked to use our own devices to work from home and being paid administrative leave for any authorized hours that we are unable to work during the closure.
Rebecca Schnizler
01:29:09
@louisa Whitfield-Smith, that’s wonderful news to know you will be paid
Jeanmarie Embler
01:29:14
As of now our staff is being paid, keeping track of all our worktime. Our Director is working so hard, she has our back!
Rosalind Kutler
01:29:16
Redwood City Public Library also distributed laptops and hotspots to employees who needed them to work remotely.
Beth Borene
01:29:19
So some pages are working from home...cool. Are circulation workers also working from home? Our PT staff are currently on paid furlough, but we don't know for how long, so I'm interested in this option...
Estel Porras
01:29:22
As far as I've heard, our schools will not be going back for the rest of the year.
Francisco Miranda
01:29:34
@ Susan from Ossining, what kind of remote work is the F/T and P/T staff working on?
Lorena Neal
01:29:41
Here’s a site for Racial Equity and Social Justice resources during COVID - good for immediate staff learning and community aid, as well as future planning: https://www.racialequitytools.org/fundamentals/resource-lists/resources-addressing-covid-19-with-racial-equity-lens
Emily Dowie
01:29:55
thank you Lorena
Rosalind Kutler
01:29:56
Many of our paraprofessionals are working remotely; we work as a team.
Sarah Scott
01:30:14
@Lorena Neal, thanks for sharing.
Axel Fust
01:30:14
I'm a circulation clerk and am able to work from home at this time thankfully. I'm taking webinars and curating book lists. Also reading leadership books. Like "dream Teams" by shane snow
Susan McCormack
01:30:21
We have to work that out with our supervisor. Today's webinar is something that was approved for me.
Terri Foster
01:30:33
This is great chat but overwhelming along with the webinar presentation. Will there be a recording/chat transcript available?
Jennifer Morrow
01:30:45
LAPL Circulation staff: We are also telecommuting and doing training and working on things related to our jobs.
Estel Porras
01:31:08
Will the chat comments be included in the full transcript.?
Francisco Miranda
01:31:17
@ Susan at Ossining, I see. Thank you. I asked since some of the work that deals with Evergreen might be difficult to do from home since we would need to ask IT to give us remote access to Evergreen and VDI.
Emily Dowie
01:31:24
there’s a group I started through RCLS called RCLS coalition for library workers of color and we just met virtually today and talked about how we’re coping with crisis
Axel Fust
01:31:26
We're using a google doc to keep track of our work through the day as a way to leave a paper trail of all we're doing from home. We also are going to have weekly check ins with our suprvisors
Estel Porras
01:31:36
So we can have access to the sites
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:31:42
If anyone else is interested in the executive order and expedited legislation that empowers Mississippi libraries to send all staff home with full pay to look at as something to advocate for with your state, my email is lwhitfieldsmith@mlc.lib.ms.us.
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:32:02
Richard, the Mississippi Library Commission is absolutely thinking about and working on the budget impacts for libraries for next fiscal year
Susan McCormack
01:32:18
In additional to PD, we can do book lists, book reviews, create videos, story times and other digital resources.
Yesianne Ramirez
01:32:23
Madison Public Library is paying part time people for now, some are being asked to help with absentee ballots at the Clerks Office since primary elections are going to happen soon in Wiscosnin
Alicia Rodriguez
01:32:27
We're talking about our communities but also let's not forget ourselves. Especially those who have never worked from home. Our directors and direct seniors have offered many ideas and have been encouraging us. Our senior sends us uplifting quotes and pictures. She has suggested journaling. We also have a system basecamp where we are sharing pet photos, ideas of what we are doing to destress and self care.
Jim Sherod
01:32:32
LAPL staff are mostly all telecommuting now. They are doing a lot of training courses and development of skills, planning ahead for story times and programming, and even honing their language skills such as Spanish for public service. I have a couple librarians that are cataloging Japanese materials from home via Worldcat.
Celeste Steward
01:33:06
Hi, someone mentioned calling your senior library users to check in--can you elaborate on how well that was received?
Mari Ayala
01:33:12
Thanks both for speaking honestly about what paying of staff looks like. I have colleagues in neighboring libraries that have to work equivalent hours from home as what they previously worked in a physical library. Can anyone speak to that? Is work from home still expected to look EXACTLY as it did before? Would love your feedback.
Rebecca Schnizler
01:33:29
@beth borene I’m in circ in Richmond VA. Our gov closed schools thru the year. All staff, even pt circ, are doing development at home or webinars, refreshing knowledge of circ manual etc

what does that mean 2nd wave in fall
Tina Dolcetti
01:34:09
What about children and adults with intellectual disabilities?
Axel Fust
01:34:19
@mari we are expected to work our total hours but we don't have to work 8-5 We have some wiggle room to handle family and pets and stuff. We do have some limits like we have to work between 6 am and 10pm on weekdays stuff like that
Angela Maycock
01:34:20
Everyone attending today will receive access to both the webinar recording and the chat transcript!
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:34:21
I really love how the Mississippi Library Commission is handling work from home. All staff are paid full salary, full stop. Those of us deemed essential are working from home. For all time we work from home, we receive comp time. In addition, we are strongly discouraged from working more than necessary hours.
Darla Komora
01:34:25
official’s orders concerning health safety practices.
Jeanmarie Embler
01:34:27
Somnath, I agree with that. This is not going to just sweep through and be gone.
Mary Fury
01:34:28
My staff have set hours. So it is easy for me to pay them twice a month.
Cheryl Nessman
01:34:43
We came up with some work-from-home options for staff without internet access: Work from home options that do not require internet (work to be assigned by manager):Hand write reviews for books and movies that can later be entered into ChiliFreshAssist with weeding and other spreadsheets that can be mailed to the staff’s home addressMend books (pickup redbox filled with books & necessary materials)Go through non-archived photographs of Mead Library and name people and events (pickup photos from library)Crafty? Write up a proposal for an Imaginarium program, including example of finished project
Amber Allen
01:35:11
This is the second webinar on this topic that I have listened to and I would heartily recommend that everyone listen to the ALA webinar that also covered this topic! And concerning whether work should be the EXACT same amount of hours. Our Director is being absolutely amazing and extremely flexible. I will link to the archived webinar for those who are members and want to listen! :)
Kirsten Pearson
01:35:11
Our staff is allowed to be flexible. Many of their jobs cannot be done from home in its entirety, so our director is being flexible with expectations
Somnath Konduru
01:35:13
Should this virus go away, there is a possibility for it to come back in Fall, that's what is called 2nd wave
Jim Sherod
01:35:15
1917 pandemic was bad first season, but roared back in 1918 and was even worse. Let’s hope we’ll have a vaccine available to fight off the “2nd wave."
Estel Porras
01:35:16
@Angela Maycock, great!
Pamela McLaughlin
01:35:22
Patty's comment about equipment - I think most of our staff who can work from home are using their own laptops/desktops. Our library said that a supervisor would meet people without equipment at the library and checkout a laptop and mobile hotspot if necessary
Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:35:53
Thanks, Amber!
Jane Dobija
01:36:16
Could you speak about serving patrons who are on the underprivileged side of the digital divide?
Yesianne Ramirez
01:36:18
How do you prepare for the possibility of drastic demographic changes after COVID-19?

Jenifer Phillips
01:36:28
@ Mari Ayala If staff are expected to work from home for the same hours, how is the library addressing the technology involved? If staff is using there own technology and they are sharing it with kids that may have virtual classwork, that should be taken into consideration. If the same hours are expected then the library should supply the equipment like a laptop.
Kirsten Pearson
01:36:35
Our director understands that this is uncharted territory and we cannot expect it be like a weather closure or something of that nature.
Somnath Konduru
01:36:40
2nd wave of flue that came back in 1918 is what killed millons is my understanding
Beth Borene
01:36:50
@Amber Allen - were the chats available in the ALA webinar recording? I didn't see them...?
Somnath Konduru

This is also excellent for the discussion forums for the SJSU iSchool program I am currently in
Amber Allen
01:37:08
An Italian librarian, one from Washington, a Mental Health professional, and an expert on Mindfulness all spoke and I would really recommend listening to it!
Nicole Punches
01:37:09
I had to click on the icon, but the did show up in the ALA webinar for me
Nicole Punches
01:37:20
the archived version, I mean
Beth Borene
01:37:26
Ah yeah. I did listen to that. :)
Yesianne Ramirez
01:37:43
@Amber I hear that one, it was really interesting
Alicia Rodriguez
01:37:48
@Amber it was a great discussion.
Emerald Culmer-Royster
01:37:49
Related to self care, use Insight Timer and the Calm app!
Beth Borene
01:37:58
Especially the King County librarian!
Beth Edwards

We are allowing people to obtain a temporary library card # and PIN # from our webgsite to access our on-line services. www.mmrls.lib.ms.us
Alicia Rodriguez
01:38:24
@Beth yes she is amazing!
Mari Ayala
01:38:30
@jeniferphillips, thank you for that perspective:) That's a good question. I don't think it's fair. But I was hoping to hear what different libraries feel.
Amber Allen
01:38:55
These webinars are wonderful resources for ideas and to reassure all of us that we are not alone! And they are also very heart-wrenching honestly. As this begins in the United States it is sobering to think about how it may continue to spread!
Tina Jazaeridezfully
01:39:01
thanks
Alice Baptiste
01:39:10
We are also offering a temporary card and pin for access.
Tina Jazaeridezfully
01:39:10
we all rock here
Francisco Miranda
01:39:11
The Field Library needs to look into online library card registration for patrons. It's a service that we do not provide.
Alicia Rodriguez
01:39:19
Our LAPL system recently extended the e-card to our county. It was only for Los Angeles city. Our City Librarian announced that yesterday.
Alice Baptiste
01:39:30
Tina, you better believe it! We rock!
Julianna Robbins
01:39:34
Hey @Alicia Rodriguez!
Stephanie Lien
01:39:40
LA County Library also now provides ecards
Axel Fust
01:39:41
Does anyone have a way to give State library cards online?
Darla Komora
01:39:44
For the current pandemic, I believe it will last two years, similar to the 1918 pandemic. We are learning as we go through this crisis. I believe people will use our electronic resources as the new norm. Our Learning Lab staff assist customers with resumes and education . As the “Library of Things” Librarian we will provide nontraditional items for our customers to borrow.
Beth Borene
01:39:46
We are also offering online library cards, but you need a DE address to get one.
Alicia Rodriguez
01:39:47
Hi @Julianna!
Francisco Miranda
01:39:50
I applaud the Tarrytown-Warner Library for providing online library card registration.
Lisa Shirley
01:39:55
We are allowing people to apply for a card online and all cards with less $25 in fines that might expire are extended to May.
Lisa Shirley
01:40:17
@Francisco Thanks.
Beth Edwards
01:40:35
we have suspended all fines during this period
Amber Allen
01:40:41
We are working on creating access to "Digital Access Cards" and we should have that implemented hopefully this week or next week!

@ Lisa, You're welcome! Hey, I'm just as much a Warner staff member as I am a Peekskill staff member :)
Aaron Pickett
01:40:57
We are allowing patrons to register for library cards online - we are emailing them their permanent number so they can access all of our ebook resources and place holds and we will physically mail them to patrons when we reopen. We are also automatically renewing cards about to expire and lifting all blocks so that patrons can access all of our online materials
Beth Borene
01:41:00
Yes, same in Delaware. All fines suspended and due dates moved.
Donna Speakman
01:41:09
Beth Borene, I attended that one online last friday. It was recorded and made available. If you are the Beth Borene at NCC DE, I can email you the link. Yes you do need a DE address for our ecards.
Rosanne North-Jack
01:41:15
We've suspended late fees for the duration we're closed and are allowing people to renew cards online and sign up for a Digital Library Card to only access our digital resources (online)
Beth Edwards
01:41:23
yes - our due dates moved to 5/4/2020 at this time!
Sally Thomas
01:41:38
Hello @Julianna and @Alicia!
Beth Borene
01:41:39
Hey Donna - yes, I have seen it. Thanks, though!
Christina Hinds
01:41:43
Agree with what was said we are in the community business and most likely will be once we reopen. I applaud those who are also helping out in their community at this time. Their stories are really heart warming and wonderful to hear.
Julianna Robbins
01:41:52
Hey @Sally Thomas - great to see CA folks here.
Sara Ryan
01:41:53
Fine-free becoming more the norm once libraries reopen would be a positive change.
Tina Jazaeridezfully
01:41:53
all our fines will be waived and backdate of books once we reopen I heard may open end of April LAPL libraries
Sabrina Taylor
01:41:55
We are offering e-cards and we are waiving fines.
Linda Smith

Maybe more libraries will no longer charge fines since many suspended them now.
Sabrina Taylor
01:42:24
We are also advertising on our website that Wi-Fi is available on library property.

Louisa Whitfield-Smith
01:42:33
Stuart, thanks for sharing that
Rosanne North-Jack
01:42:36
Our fines contribute to our county's budget so even in this climate I doubt we'd get rid of them altogether.
Lisa Williams
01:43:11
Thanks for the Kiwanis reference!
Francisco Miranda
01:43:16
@Rosanne, that's unfortunate. Given the situation there are many who may not be able to afford the fines.
Beth Edwards
01:43:24
we have a big banner on the outside of our library building letting people know that we have wi-fi
Melissa Renner
01:43:28
We can't sustain Hoopla in the best of times
Rosanne North-Jack
01:43:29
Fines are suspended while we're closed, to clarify.
Donna Speakman
01:43:31
We will be offering fine free returns for a while once we do re-open. It has been posted on websites and at our sealed bookdrops for patrons to keep their materials and they will not be charged fines.
Lisa Williams
01:43:42
Hoopla sustainability is a concern. We've been focused more on building our Overdrive consortia collection
Francisco Miranda
01:43:54
@Rosanne, ah ok. I misread your statement. My apologies

Santa Cruz Public Libraries has waived all overdue fines while we are closed and sheltered in place. We have also boosted our e resources and have made it easier for folks to obtain a library card online, regardless of fines on their accounts.
Felecia Warren
01:44:22
lapl starting 3/31/2020 will no longer charge fines.

People will always come back to print items. Parents will always want picture books for kids on their laps. Older patrons dislike electronic media and want to relax with a book. And here we are to provide this.

Jim Sherod

LAPL is very fortunate to have the resources for Hoopla, Lynda.com, Gale Resources, Learning Express, Universal Class, etc. Also very impressed with our administration’s preparation to put plans into effect quickly during this crisis. A lot of forethought prepared our system well - as well as a flurry of meetings as the situation changed and they coordinated with the Mayor and the Governor’s directives. They had a telecommuting process lined up far in advance, for instance.
