Webinar Title: Rebuilding the Children’s Collection after Natural Disaster

When: Thursday, October 6 2022, 2:00 – 3:00 PM CDT

CE Credit: 1 TSLAC CE hour (CPE eligible for Texas educators)

Description: The Texas Ice Storm of 2021 brought unexpected hardships to many individuals and businesses. The Westbank Community library was no exception. Westbank lost power, fire sprinklers discharged and pipes burst, resulting in flooding of the Children’s room. Over 10,000 items were destroyed. Join us on our unexpected journey of remediation, renovation and re-ordering. Learn what it took to rebuild the collection and make it even better than it was before the storm. Presenters will share crucial steps, vendor support, re-ordering processes, lessons learned and surprises along the way towards restoring the Children’s collection.

Presented by: Elena Carvajal, Kristi M. Floyd and Sidney Schubarth of Westbank Libraries.
