Active Shooter Procedures for Libraries (Infopeople)
Have you thought about what to do in an active shooter situation? Have you identified the most vulnerable areas in your library? Do you know where to go for resources to create an active shooter procedure? Join North Dakota State Librarian Mary Soucie as she discusses what should be included in an active shooter procedure, including an emergency and disaster plan, communication plan and evacuation plan.

Reconsideration Process – From Complaint to Conclusion (Future Ready Librarians)

In this session, we’ll learn about both ends of the reconsideration process to understand how a school librarian and a board of education member respond to book challenges.


Public and School Libraries: Creative Ways to Build Successful Partnerships (WebJunction)
Public and school libraries are driven by a similar goal—to help community members gain new knowledge, skills, and confidence to pursue their lives fully. Unfortunately, these libraries often lack the resources to fulfill that goal. There is a powerful opportunity for public and school libraries to collaborate to overcome many of the resource gaps they encounter when seeking to meet community needs. Join this webinar to explore how public and school libraries can initiate collaborative relationships and the types of programming that can benefit from these partnerships. Learn how to market or publicize your services to teachers and school librarians, and identify the best times of year to communicate with local schools.
