    Super cool! Sounds like a great time! Is this training open to the public? If so, will they be required to wear masks?

    Itโ€™s fun to see the interest and thanks for the question. This is just for staff, so we are using the Lower Level Conference Room. All will be wearing masks, and weโ€™re using 10 as the number of people in the room at a time.

    Oh, this sounds amazing! Those times won’t work for bookmobile staff like myself who are scheduled out on a vehicle that day. I hope this gets offered again either during one of our maintenance weeks or perhaps as a staff development day break-out session. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks, Michelle, for mentioning this. If there’s a demand in 2022, it would be a good idea to repeat it during a maintenance week for any who can’t attend on the 4th.
