Many families rely on their public libraries during the summertime. In a time of a pandemic, public libraries will be closed during the summer months, and that includes the wonderful face-to-face programming they offer to their communities. How will the pandemic change traditional summer programs in libraries across the nation? What does a summer learning or summer reading program look like now? What can libraries offer that engage kids, relieve families, and restore communities? We invite you to learn how Allegheny County Public Libraries and San Francisco Public Library are reimagining summer programs as a result of the coronavirus.
