Virtual is Here to Stay: Making Online Sessions Fun and Focused
Nov 10 @ 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Virtual is Here to Stay: Making Online Sessions Fun and Focused

Learn strategies to plan, design and host live online meetings or presentations that will energize, inform, and encourage your audience.

[Note: This webinar has been moved one day to avoid Veteran’s Day.]

Let’s face it – online meetings and events are here to stay. Whether it’s delivering online programming, facilitating staff meetings, or orchestrating an online conference, we are spending many hours online, trying to connect with others while staring at a screen. “Zoom fatigue” is real, but there are ways to mitigate it. Learn strategies to plan, design and host live online meetings or presentations that will energize, inform, and encourage your library audience to settle in, participate, and learn. Together, we’ll find that virtual can be fun and refreshing!

Presented by: Nancy Lensenmayer, Program Director, Education/Professional Dev, OCLC Member Relations; Betha Gutsche, WebJunction Programs Manager, OCLC; and Kathleen Gesinger, WebJunction Learning Community Manager, OCLC

Understanding Eviction and How Libraries Can Help
Nov 18 @ 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Understanding Eviction and How Libraries Can Help

Learn how you and your library can better connect people to eviction-related information and services.

Housing insecurity and high rates of eviction were already a crisis in certain regions prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Soaring unemployment levels and confusing moratoria have also aggravated the situation. Under normal circumstances, the eviction process is so complex that it can be difficult for landlords and tenants alike to understand and navigate. Over the last two years, additional layers of complexity were added as national, state, county, and municipal government implemented, rescinded, or modified an assortment of policies related to eviction (National Low Income Housing Coalition). Join this webinar to understand the current state of the eviction crisis, recognize the basic stages of the process, and discuss options for forestalling evictions through rental assistance. Learn how you and your library can sort through the maze and connect people to eviction-related information and services. You can make a big difference in the lives of these community members.

Presented by: Kristin Wong, Financial Analyst, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Rent Content Lead, Federal Housing Help Portal; and Deb Hamilton, Strategic Services Librarian – Law Collection, Pikes Peak Library District (CO)
