Libraries made immense adaptations and changes to provide service during the pandemic. Many of these also (incidentally) addressed a host of accessibility and assistive needs as well.

Now that the pandemic has mostly passed, these assistive needs (and responses to them) can help libraries figure out what to make permanent. Come and learn how!

As a result of this program, attendees will learn:
• How library services during the pandemic addressed accessibility needs
• How to begin the process of choosing which services to continue
• What additional accessibility needs libraries should begin considering

Presenter: Babak Zarin is the Central Rappahannock Regional Library Access Services Librarian, where he administers the Fredericksburg Subregional Library for the Blind and Print Disabled (AKA the Talking Books Library) and helps to offer accessible programming.

A member of the 2018-2019 ALA Spectrum Scholar cohort, and winner of the Virginia Library Association’s 2021 Up and Comer Award, his research interests include fandom studies and how library services can adapt to today’s pluralistic information seekers.
