Virtual Learning and Support Sessions – A focus on Recovery

These sessions have been very well received and fast becoming a useful vehicle for CMLs to receive and share updates/ideas, ask questions, discuss their concerns and challenges and support each other.

With libraries set to be open in the third phase of the government’s “COVID-19 recovery strategy”, and July 4 earmarked as the earliest date for this to happen, the virtual learning sessions will now focus on RECOVERY.   To book a place at these sessions simply click the date you wish to attend and follow the instructions. We will send you a ZOOM link to join the session when you register.

Recovery:

In advance of these sessions you may wish to read this interesting blog from Libraries Connected:  Safety first: The recovery of Library Services.  You may also want to look at BEIS guidance on safe operation of various workplaces – on GOV.UK here

Also, to note that Libraries Connected are developing general libraries guidance for restoring services that will have input from Public Health England.  The Peer Network will be sitting on the ministerial group that will work through and agree it and will update you in due course.
