NYLA Conference | ESLN Program: The Lemonade of Crisis Response

Nov 6, 2020, 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Hosted by: The Empire State Library Network


2020 has tested the flexibility, resilience, and resourcefulness of libraries as never before, but one thing is for sure: communities rely on their libraries during a time of crisis. What have we learned from 2020, and how will we use it in the years to come? Using the vocabulary of federal crisis response, this interactive session is designed to give library leaders and staff skills for not only responding to rapidly evolving crises, but using that response to hone and amplify your library's role in the community. This session will also put an emphasis on personal well-being as a key component of emergency response.
Stephanie "Cole" Adams is an attorney advising libraries, creative professionals, civic organizations, and higher education institutions as they build our culture. Cole staffs ESLN's Ask the Lawyer service. She first developed a deep connection to libraries working as a page, then clerk, at her hometown library in New Hartford, NY. For over 10 years, Ms. Adams was the in-house counsel at Niagara University. She is now the owner of her own practice, the Law Office of Stephanie Adams, PLLC, in Buffalo. Ms. Adams is admitted to practice in both the state and federal courts of New York.
