Preventing and Responding to Mold in Your Library: REady Steady In the Library: taking Initiative before an Emergency, Natural disaster, or Trauma
Despite the best plans about what to do in the moment you experience a fire or flood or extended power outage, these random events still occur. And then what? The focus of this webinar is about helping libraries plan for recovery after a catastrophic event. This session is structured as a panel discussion with three library directors who have experienced disasters at their libraries. They will briefly explain what happened and then describe how they and their staff transitioned from the immediate response to rebuilding. They will share lessons on what they wished they had known or done before the disaster, what they learned during the rebuilding, and any steps they took to review what happened that inform new plans or policies.
