Special Guest Speaker Presentation One Week From Today

When technical difficulties prevented us from streaming and recording one of our guest presentations at last month's PLA conference, we knew we had to devise another way to get this presentation to you. We are positively delighted that our guest speaker, Cathay Keough from Sarasota County Libraries, has graciously agreed to return for a special webinar next Wednesday, May 22 at 1pm ET!

Expanding Options for Community Access

Sarasota County Libraries have introduced a groundbreaking feature: allowing patrons to present their ID via Ask Us/LibChat for immediate issuance of a library card.

How? Using LibAnswers' Microsoft Teams and Zoom integrations to facilitate seamless screensharing with patrons!

And this is just the beginning - there's boundless potential for how Sarasota County Libraries can reach patrons via LibAnswers' screensharing! Cathay explains:

"When libraries provide options for patrons wherever they are physically - as well as with what level of information or assistance they are seeking - we are relevant."


In next Wednesday's webinar, Cathay will discuss how this transformative approach revolutionizes library access, offering new patrons an additional convenient avenue to connect with them.

Whether you attend live or sign up for access to the recording, this is a presentation you won't want to miss!
