Massachusetts Libraries Partner with Climate Preparedness Week (Webinar)
Host a Climate Change Event and Put Your Library on the Map!
Massachusetts librarians are invited to partner with Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) to host climate change events across the state as part of Climate Preparedness Week (September 21st - 28th, 2020). The webinar will begin with background on Climate Preparedness Week, followed by examples of resilience-building events you can host in your library. The goal of this week is to build community resilience and create a safety net in advance of extreme weather events. Let your imagination run wild (e.g. environmental justice training, go bag workshops, youth leadership circles, mindfulness practices, book talks, film screenings, reflective writing, interactive displays). All types of librarians (public, academic, school, archives, special) are invited to attend.
*Participating libraries will be represented on an interactive map on CREW’s website.
