Districts Provide Virtual Office Hours

Social Network

Online Conversations in ZOOM

State Library District Consultants have some news to share--really more of an invitation.  In light of the Coronavirus situation, District Consultants will begin offering virtual office hours in the days ahead.  Days and times will vary, but one thing will hold true everywhere: this will be a nice way to connect with each other!

With the majority of Iowa's public libraries closed to foot traffic, and with so many 1-2 person operations, we hope that these virtual office hours will help you feel more connected with colleagues around the region.  And given that State Library staff are grounded from our normal travels, we also hope that these online chats will help you feel more connected to us--your support network at the state level. 

Library directors and staff are welcome to drop in just to chat.  These will be informal, casual conversations (not for c.e. credit)  Come as you are, where you are, whether logging in from your library or from your home.  It will be helpful to bring some type of  microphone / headset device to the conversation.  

Again, dates and times will vary, see below.  And note this opportunity will be available in all six Districts: Becky Heil at Southwest District sent a bulletin the other day announcing her plans, Eunice Riesberg at Northeast District will do likewise soon.  This bulletin captures dates and times for the other four Districts showing below:

Northwest District with Bonnie McKewon
Tuesdays 10:30-11:30AM starting March 31. ZOOM Room 

Central District with Maryann Mori
Tuesdays 1:30-2:30PM starting March 31. ZOOM Room


Southwest District with Misty Gray
Thursdays 10:00-11:00AM starting April 2.  ZOOM Room


North Central District with Jay Peterson

Until we meet again in person, we hope you'll join us
online for companionship and conversation :-)  

Stay well...
