When we think libraries, many of us think- BOOKS! But, libraries are so much more and often the heart of a community. They also play a critical role during crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. In this episode, we explore the context of libraries and their role in communities – both everyday… and during a crisis. Joining me is an incredible panel representing various aspects of the San Francisco Public Library. Michelle Jeffers is Chief of Community Programs & Partnership at SFPL. Marie Ciepiela is Executive Director of the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library. And, Jaena Rae Cabrera is Acting Branch Manager and West Portal Branch… and front-line essential worker during the COVID-19 pandemic.
