In world with a 24-hour news cycle, libraries must be ready to communicate quickly about any crisis that may impact their community. Yet few libraries have an up to date crisis communication plan. From a natural disaster, a shooting in a branch, anger in the community over a library program or partnership, or a social media campaign against a library choice, a crisis can take many forms.

Join presenter and communications director Kim Crowder as she shares how you can create a full crisis communications plan from start to finish. She will discuss real examples of crisis communications plans that worked, and missteps that you can avoid. Start building a strong plan and community relationships now that will help you once crisis hits.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Learn to use public relations, social media, website, email and more to build a strong crisis communications plan.
  • Understand which relationships  should be created ahead of time, before crisis happens
  • Discover the steps to writing a successful plan that they can start today
  • Consider different avenues of communication based on the type of crisis

This webinar will be of interest to: Anyone who works with communications outlets, in charge of sharing information internally with staff, and handles social media for library systems.
