OVERVIEW: If you define yourself as a Rural Librarian, see if these scenarios sound familiar:
If you work in a city or county library in an active neighborhood in a larger community, you would know how to address each of these by getting help from a co-worker, by asking a supervisor to speak to these people, by disengaging and doing your work at another part of the facility, or even by going into a back room and calling the police from a safe place. However, if you work in a rural library location--which can be defined as having a police or sheriff’s response that could be 20 minutes to an hour away, working alone in the building, or working in a one-room facility, with only one way in or out--these options aren’t always available.
This webinar is here to help.
AUDIENCE: This webinar program is for all library employees who work in rural areas, as well as the library leadership that supervises these facilities, especially from a distance.
COST: $98/person - includes access to the recording and access to the attendee discussion forum. For group discounts, to submit a purchase order, or for any registration difficulties or questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
