Next year, they plan to relaunch #VoteLibraries2020 to help put non-partisan library issues on the local, state, and federal landscape.

  10. Circulating Tools and Other Unique Items

    November 21, 2019, 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM

    Sponsored by- North Dakota State Library Libraries have been circulating “non-traditional” items since at least the 1800s so it’s no surprise that North Dakota libraries are embracing unique collections. In 2017, the Minot Public Library (MPL) was approached by volunteers with the AmeriCorps VISTA Program about providing a tool library and since MPL had experience circulating unique items such as tablets, robots, video games and more, the Library staff jumped on board. The MPL tool library was not just about being trendy though. The goal of the VISTA program is to promote resiliency and the purpose of the tool library is to help people become more resilient which was especially important in Minot following the 2011 flood. In this webinar, MPL Director, Janet Anderson, will describe the work that went into opening a tool library and share some of the important lessons the staff have learned.
