MLA Connect Coffee Hour: Reopening Plans

Thursday, June 4, 2020

Grab a cozy mug of your favorite beverage and join MLA Executive Director, Debbie Mikula as she moderates a panel discussion of how libraries across the state are planning their safe reopening. Panelists will discuss how they created their libraries' reopening plans, important phases and milestones included in their plans, and hurdles their libraries are facing. Each panelist will have 10 minutes to review the major components of their plan, followed by discussion.


Megan Buck, Director, Dickinson County Library

Valerie Meyerson, Director, Petoskey District Library

Lance Werner, Director, Kent District Library

Panelists will discuss:

  • Their phases of re-opening and important milestones.
  • Why they decided to structure their plan the way they did. What factors went into the decision making and who helped draft their plan.
  • What they see as their biggest hurdles to reopening safely and how they plan to address them.

Each week we provide a platform for you to ask questions, share ideas, and provide input to other library professionals struggling with the global health crisis, remote work, and how to prepare for the future.

This coffee hour is free to attend to anyone interested in joining the conversation! A maximum of 500 attendees can join the live event.
