The Value of Public Libraries to First Responders
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine South Central Region (NN/LM SCR) recently completed a video highlighting the role of public libraries after an emergency. The goal was for public librarians to show to first-responder groups, city councils, local government, etc. to promote the role public libraries play. Many groups are not aware of all public libraries can and already do for the community and first responders and libraries have indicated that a video would be the best method to communicate this message. Preliminary feedback from public libraries in our Region (AR, LA, NM, OK, TX) has been very positive.
The video is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZUEChxl74g. Feel free to share with anyone who may be interested.
