Library Friends & Foundations Forum: Book Donations & Books Sales During a Pandemic

Colorado Library Friends & Foundations Forum:
Handling Book Donations & Books Sales During a Pandemic
Thursday, July 9, 2:00-3:30pm

How is your library’s Friends or Foundation handling book donations and book sales during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Join us virtually on July 9, 2:00-3:30pm, for an interactive forum to listen, share, and learn. Listen to a panel made up of staff and volunteers from several Colorado Public Library Friends and Foundation organizations as they discuss their strategies for safety, partnership, volunteer engagement, and fundraising alternatives. You will have the chance to participate, to ask questions, as well as share your ideas and experiences using chat.
