Ask Us Anything (AUA) for Healthier Libraries
October 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
Do you have something on your mind about your work in the library that needs to be shared? Do you want to vent about something that is making you mad, frustrated etc. about your work or workplace?
Got a problem with a co-worker or your boss? Have a customer situation that is driving you to the brink? Are you being drained from working in a pandemic-influenced environment? Are you tired of being the “mask police”?
This Ask Us Anything (AUA) program is the place for you to anonymously and safely share what’s going on in your work. And to help, we have gathered a panel of experts to offer solutions and opinions. (After all, even complaining gets tiresome after a while)
We encourage you to anonymously post your concern, gripe, complaint or problem etc. in writing before the program in our Survey Monkey form. You can access the form at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9NMNW9Z
