NJLA Virtual Keynote - The Role of Libraries in NJ’s Road to Economic Recovery
NJLA Virtual Keynotes are a free benefit to current NJLA Members.

Description:
The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated our economy with unprecedented levels of unemployment, small business closures, limited service options for businesses, and more. During this virtual panel presentation, you will learn about programs, services, and collaborations in libraries that are supporting individual job seekers, unemployed workers seeking benefits, and small businesses. There will be a brief question and answer period at the end of this program. The goal of this program is to share ideas and to offer inspiration -- not to offer specific guidelines for libraries to follow.

Tonya Garcia, Director, Long Branch Public Library
Dr. Marie L. Radford, Chair and Professor of Library & Information Science, Rutgers University
Karen Pifher, Manager of Young Minds and Family Resources, Somerset County Library System
Carolann DeMatos, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Somerset County Library System
