Director of Communications, Advocacy, and Member Engagement Association of Science and Technology Centers
Childrens museums and science centers have deep expertise explaining health and science topics to the general public. Public libraries are go-to hubs for community members seeking reliable information on health and wellness, among many other topics. How might these two institutions combine their strengths to help educate and inform the public about viruses and vaccines? This panel will feature staff of museums who have experience with partnering with their local library, so that we can have a generative discussion about how those partnerships can be of service during the COVID-19 pandemic and at the ready for future public health crises. The discussion will be hosted by REopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums (REALM) project staff and will also feature the latest toolkit resources produced by REALM.
