Free Webinar – From Facilities to Trauma : Disaster Planning and Community Resiliency at Your Library

Date: Tuesday, January 30, 2018
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Place: Online at https://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/disaster-planning-community-resiliency.html
Presenter: Michele Stricker, Deputy State Librarian for Lifelong Learning, New Jersey State Library
Cost: Free

Recent catastrophes have highlighted the important role public libraries play in enhancing their community’s resiliency and post-disaster recovery efforts. Many community leaders now view libraries as ad hoc disaster recovery centers and recognize librarians as Information First Responders. This presentation will help you and your library embrace this new role as Information First Responders, who quickly enable people to get back to work, back to their lives, and ensure recovery of the community’s economic life. Learn what you need to prepare before disaster strikes, guided by New Jersey State Library’s Disaster Preparedness & Community Resiliency Toolkit, which has been emergency-tested by libraries. Your library can be at the forefront in providing that safe haven in times of crisis and helping your community return to normal life
