ONLibChat: Adaptive Re-use of Space: TPL & Pop-Up Food Banks

Date & Time:

Tuesday June 2nd, from 2-3pm EST


Toronto Public Library was asked by the City of Toronto if they could provide any assistance to food banks across the city, as they struggled to keep service going for Citizens in Toronto when a third of the food bank had to shut down due to COVID-19 restrictions.

TPL staff will talk about how the service came together and the learning that resulted, show some pictures and run an informal Q and A about any questions related to the experience.
