The Library has asked whether our group would like to conduct our meetings “virtually” while BHPL is closed to the public.
Personally, I am not a big fan of the virtual format for discussions like ours, and I would not be inclined to participate. Although I am generally a technophile, I think that having meaningful discussions of difficult topics doesn’t really work when we’re not physically together–no “body language” feedback, too many background distractions, etc.
But if someone would like to lead a virtual initiative, I encourage you to contact Hannah Cyrus at the Library to get the information for their “GoToMeeting” account. And I’ll be happy to help publicize the information on the Beyond Labels website (if you don’t know how to do it yourself).
