Providing Virtual Programming in a Health Crisis

Class Details

Our buildings may be closed, but our libraries should be open. See how you can provide vital health programming to your patrons at little cost and without extensive technology. Join Tony Iovino, Assistant Director for Community Services for the Oceanside (NY) Library as he discusses how his library has already provided dozens of virtual health information programs for patrons of all ages. Topics discussed will be types of programming, technology used, staff training, use of outside experts, and how to present health programming at little or no cost.

Tony Iovino has been the Assistant Director for Community Services for the Oceanside Library since 2015. Prior to that, he was the head of litigation and managing partner for a law firm in Garden City, NY that he started in 1986. Tony received his undergraduate degree from the University of Richmond, his juris doctorate from St. John's University School of Law, and is currently enrolled at the University of Kentucky, seeking his Masters in Library Information Science.

Tony is a published author (Notary Public Enemy, Diversion Press) and poet. He served on the Oceanside School District Board of Education, and has served as a board member and attorney for dozens of non-profit and public boards. He and his wife of 40 years, Angela, have two grown daughters.
