Public Library Curbside Pickup Plans: Learning from BC

Public Library Curbside Pickup Plans: Learning from BC

Date & Time:

Wednesday May 20th at 1pm EST


Earlier this month North Vancouver District Public Library launched Library Takeout, a phased curbside pickup service that allows users to place holds and pickup items during scheduled appointment windows. Join Sandi Burgess, Manager of Welcoming Initiatives, as she shares NVDPL's learning experiences and detailed phase plans. This is a key opportunity for us to learn from one another, ask questions, and discuss best practices in preparation for curbside pickup in Ontario public libraries.

About the Presenter:

Sandi Burgess is North Vancouver District Public Library's Manager of Welcoming Initiatives. Sandi has worked in library management since 2003 in both urban and rural systems – Burlington Public Library in Ontario, Elgin County Library and most recently, Fraser Valley Regional Library where she managed three libraries in Delta.  She has experience working in every functional area of libraries from leading storytime to migrating library database systems and redesigning spaces.  In 2015, Sandi served as the President of the Ontario Public Library Association. She currently lives in Horseshoe Bay with her better half and their two dogs, Wilson and Norris.  She loves hiking, kayaking, traveling, theatre and new opportunities to learn.

This session is moderated by Rochelle Mazar.
