Resources for the Public About Libraries and COVID
Libraries are closing their physical spaces to the public in order to increase social distancing and we applaud those libraries that have closed. That doesn’t necessarily mean that libraries won’t continue to serve the public in some manner while their doors are closed. There are many digital and online library resources that are available to the public online and we created this content to help highlight how libraries can continue to serve the public even while closed.
We are interested in ensuring that the public continues to understand that there are still library resources available to them during this time - but much of the public doesn’t yet know about offerings available for free with a library card.
Every $10 we raise helps us promote libraries to more than 1,000 Americans
