Community Chats on Zoom

Let’s talk. We miss interacting with our wonderful library community, and many of you probably miss each other too. As a public gathering space, we thrive on all of those serendipitous connections that happen every day – connections that aren’t happening when our doors are closed.

To bring back that opportunity for connection and conversation, we are launching online Community Chats through Zoom. At the Community Chats, we will give a short introduction or presentation on a topic and then open up the meeting for questions or discussion. A librarian will be on hand to facilitate, but the forum is really about you and what’s on your mind.

We hope you can join us for one or more of these Community Chats. If you are new to Zoom video conferencing and would like to know more about how it works, please e-mail us at
