Whether reimagining existing programs or creating new ones, librarians sought the opportunity to foster connections between the library and its patrons in the wake of a rapid transition to online learning in the Spring of 2020. This panel will showcase how librarians have embraced community connection in a creative and timely manner using both established and experimental methods, with discussions of how these efforts may persist beyond the socially distant library. Alex O’Keefe and Mackenzie Salisbury will walk through creating a wide range of virtual programming using Instagram as a primary platform. Elisa Hansen will describe the development of the museum’s book discussion group, Literati, from its success as an on-site library program to a virtual format during the pandemic. Anna Boutin-Cooper will discuss the transitioning of an in-person film festival to a completely virtual series of film screenings, through the use of Facebook Live and Open Broadcaster Software (OBS).
