Teresa Natzke

The Library of Michigan has been a godsend during this stay at home phase!
North Adams
18:28
Do you think we might be able to have actual programs in our libraries by summer? I have one scheduled in early June.
Cindi Place
20:21
Thanks Randy
North Adams
21:40
Thank you.
Stephani
21:40
Has there been a set of guidelines established for how we should count statistics on virtual programs?
Teresa Natzke
22:08
I am beginning to figure out how I can do virtual programming this summer. I am planning to have no in person programs this summer.
Tracy Logan
22:43
Joe mentioned it at the director's meeting a couple weeks ago
Cindi Place
24:28
Cranky good way to put it.
Ann Greene
24:29
My patrons have been very patient.
Teresa Natzke
24:45
I haven't had any complaints thus far.
Sheryl Mase
24:50
Any idea on when melcat and rides would begin again?
barbarabutch
25:10
Our patrons are starting to get frustrated over not able to get any items.
kay
25:44
Tired of paying us for what they perceive as "doing nothing."
Savannah Shilton
25:49
Patrons and community are understanding. Sad for sure, but understanding.
Colleen Leddy
26:11
My patrons have been patient. We’re offering online library card registration and promoting our online services.
North Adams
26:18
My patrons are anxious to get back, but I haven't heard any complaints. They understand.
Cindi Place
26:45
We just have so many patrons without access to Wi-fi (50% of our community doesn't have access)
kay
27:14
We're in the same boat as Cindi.
Michael
27:25
In flat Rock the patrons have been understanding. But starting to get anxious.
Cindi Place
27:35
Makes virtual programming and eBook circulation hard
Sheryl Mase
28:55
We need more infrastructure
Sheryl Mase
29:03
Hotspots don’t work for many
North Adams
29:11
I would LOVE to circ hotspots! But I haven't been able to find any that will operate in my geographic area!!
Cindi Place
29:12
One communityhad wi-fi boosters distributed in their community to help with access

North Adams we has the same problem but found real succces with T-Mobile if that helps.
kay
30:37
We have them. Still only help around the building.
Cindi Place
30:58
Thanks Randy for the info and support. We appreciate LM and staff during this time!
North Adams
30:59
Tried T-Mobile. Iffy - if you were outside! No guarantee it would work inside a building in our area.
Sheryl Mase
31:26
Can you leverage the IMLS CARES money as a match for telecom vendors to add rural broadband?
Stephani
31:59
If your wi-fi in your building is still on, be sure to post that on your social media and share it in local group pages. We had a huge response to that, and we were able to invite lots of new people to like our page from that.
Stephani
32:21
For people to sit in parking lot and use it.
Cindi Place
39:04
Are you anchoring the information to links at the top? Or do you just have ysers scroll through?
Teresa Natzke
39:14
They are doing it in Clawson.
Lynne
39:17
Our fire and public safety folks are doing the same in Ironwood , Bessemer, and Wakefield...
North Adams
39:49
Very nice!
Sheryl Mase
40:45
You need an article in Cadillac News
Sheryl Mase
40:55
;-)
Cindi Place
41:26
In an earlier webinar it was mentioned that news media are starving for news to post...so all of us should consider writing articles
Sheryl Mase
41:29
Yay Tracy and her magic brain!
Sheryl Mase
42:57
Press release from Library of Michigan?
North Adams
43:12
I created a "Virtual Vacation" page with links to national parks, museums, zoos, etc. All have online tours. https://qa-3159075-northadams.ploud.net/vacationing/virtual-vacations
Cindi Place
45:03
Tracy many of these links would be valuable to our patrons. May we copy your links (eg DNR waiver info) for our website? Honestly, I would be taking advantage of our hard work, but would certainly appreciate it.
Cindi Place
45:23
Meant your hard work
Liz
45:37
Yes! Thank you!!!
Cindi Place
46:12
Khan Academy offers some great help. Lots of MeL links as well
Sheryl Mase
46:16
Can you get from MDE?
Ruth Steele
46:45
I think there's going to be a MeL webinar about K-12 eresources coming up in the next couple weeks.
Cindi Place
46:46
Maybe highlight on first page of website one or two links each week/day
North Adams
47:59
I have placed announcement-type info ("check this link") in the alerts section at the top of the home page.
barbarabutch
48:06
Where can I get information on Summer Food?
Cindi Place
48:08
Bellaire library I believe is a pick up site. I am a new director...so just finding out
Laura
48:24
Jonesville is considering the possibilities of summer food programs but not participating yet.
Shawn Andary
48:58
Cathy L said there will be an informational session at the end of May.
Cindi Place
48:58
But if you can work with schools to e pick up site, we can also provide free books and SRP materials at same time
SONYA NORRIS
49:09
lancaster5@michigan.gov - summer food
North Adams

barbarabutch

Cindi Place
