Anne Shepherd will discuss practical and low cost space planning tips on how to re-open your library building with the safety of staff and patrons in mind.  Both interior and exterior spaces will be covered.

This event will stress services and space rather than electronic or remote services. Time will be allotted for questions and answers and ideas from participating libraries.

She has completed dozens of library renovations and new builds. With accountability and efficiency as her goals, she is known for managing some of the most efficient libraries in Florida and other states. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Child Development and Anthropology from Central Michigan University and earned a Master of Library Science degree from Western Michigan University.
