Texas State Library and Archives Commission publishes Reopening Libraries: Resource Guide

In response to the Governor’s recent Executive Order GA-18, Texas State Library and Archives Commission staff have prepared a Resource Guide for libraries considering a return to work. As the Governor’s Report to Open Texas makes clear, libraries must work closely with their local government to determine how to proceed. The resources in the guide include:

  • Sample reopening plans – potential templates for developing a plan that works for your community.
  • Questions and issues to consider with your governing authority – provides a starting point for discussions with your governing authority or local government.
  • Materials and resource list – resources on communications and other needs.
  • General resources for reopening business – includes OSHA guidelines and information about disinfecting materials.

Here’s a direct link to the Resource Guide: https://www.tsl.texas.gov/sites/default/files/public/tslac/ld/ldn/COVID/TSLAC_Return_to_Work_Libraries_Resources_2020.pdf

Thank you all for the work you are doing for your community, your staff and coworkers, and yourselves during this crisis. Please contact us at LD@tsl.texas.gov if there is anything we can do to help.
