Public libraries have been given permission to reopen with restrictions as part of NY Forward’s phase one in the reopening process. What does this mean for you, your library, and your community? If you do decide to reopen as part of this phase, where should you begin? Hear from directors of both libraries and library systems in rural and urban regions across New York State. They will discuss the challenges of reopening their libraries, the services their libraries are offering, and how they are ensuring that the library is safe for both their staff and patrons.
