COVID-19 Resources & Updates
CLRC is committed to supporting its member libraries and library staff during this difficult time. Due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, the Central New York Library Resouces Council has canceled all in-person professional development events and meetings for the foreseeable future. As the situation evolves we will make determinations concerning the status of meetings and events, while following recommendations issued by state and federal authorities. CLRC will be working remotely until further notice at which point we will reassess our situation. All staff members are reachable via email and phone as usual. We do not expect any disruption to CLRC services.
To encourage staying connected with each other during this time, we invite you to join us online Second Tuesdays at Ten!
Staying connected is important during this unprecedented time. CLRC is looking to stay engaged with our members by offering the library community an opportunity to chat, discuss, and check-in with colleagues around the region. Please join us for our monthly online Zoom meeting every second Tuesday. Call in to say hi, ask questions, provide updates, and talk to your fellow library people!
