Webinar: Hurricane Preparedness and Response
Join guest presenter Lauren Mandel, research coordinator for a new project that identifies and collects key service roles, best practices, tools and resource to make better use of the public libraries for hurricane and disaster preparation and recovery.
The Florida-based project helps libraries reprioritize disaster and recovery efforts to address the needs of the broader community through partnerships with fellow responders and to become a safe haven, a recovery center, information hub and evacuee resource. Come learn how this project can inform your library's disaster preparedness plan and how your library can play an important role in community preparedness and recovery.
