Blogging Through the Pandemic @ KCKPL

Presenter(s) Laura Loveless Kim Woolery

Like every public library out there, KCKPL had to think outside the box when looking for ways to serve the public remotely. We hit upon an idea to do some activity based things on a programming blog. Using WordPress we have so far provided 660 posts for 35,000+ views! It has turned out to be a fantastic way to hit on staff strengths and knowledge areas! We have everything from craft activities to local history to recipes to guitar lessons.
