“This webinar is sponsored by Demco,  but one of the presenters is Wisconsin’s own Doctor/Librarian Dr. Dipesh Navsaria, so I think it will be good,” says Leah.


From Leah: Palaces for the People Discussion

Libraries as Social Infrastructure Virtual Discussion Part 3 (Learning Together) is now available!  Discussion questions and additional resources are ready for you to use.
If you want to participate in the discussion of the themes and ideas from Eric Klinenberg’s book Palaces for the People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life, you can join in any time!  You can go back to Part 1 or Part 2Sign up hereso we know who is participating (even if you don’t add to the discussions).
Each folder contains a discussion document and a document with additional resources.   Reading the book is great, but not required, you can check out the additional resources to learn about some of the themes or delve a little deeper.
There are extra copies of the book and audiobook in Overdrive so hopefully wait time will not be too difficult.  You might also want to purchase a copy for yourself, or maybe your library has a copy.
If you have questions, please contact:

From Reb via Dr. Alex: Data and Case Studies about coronavirus transmission

This article has real data and case studies from trusted sources. I got it from a friend who is a doctor. I thought this might be useful information. https://erinbromage.wixsite.com/covid19/post/the-risks-know-them-avoid-them?fbclid=IwAR0BWDqAITCYhuJLqTAaPQdF8TtrjIZZ_rGGN1U7G2hpoZLjtMysb3kP570
