Answering the Challenge Means Listening to the Question

November 2, 2021 @ 1:05 pm 1:35 pm EDT

As library leaders explore new ways to serve their communities during later-stage COVID, many places are in real crisis while society is in turmoil.

Join EveryLibrary’s executive director John Chrastka for a discussion about how new political realities are impacting libraries and learn what can be done to continue to anticipate success.
