Date and Time: Fri, May 15, 2020 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CDT
Libraries and library workers have always played a role providing technology access and training, often working with the most underserved in our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the harsh reality that when libraries shutter, the need still remains. Many staffing Texas libraries have asked, “But how do reach those without access if we cannot physically connect with them?” While there is no quick, one-sized fits all approach, this webinar will cover strategies, tools, resources, and examples of how libraries can continue to play an essential role in working towards equitable technology access.
