Opioids in Communities: Libraries in Response

SWON is pleased to announce a series of special events coming to a location near you in early August. In partnership with the State Library of Ohio and OhioNET, each of Ohio’s Regional Library Systems will sponsor a day of learning and networking called Opioids in Communities: Libraries in Response.  From August 6th through the 9th, each region will host a day-long event featuring keynote speaker Sam Quinones, author of DREAMLAND: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic, as well as practical, local perspectives on library responses. Including speakers from a variety of library perspectives—public, academic, and K-12—this series of events will continue the conversation begun at OLC’s recent symposium on the same topic. While this event is geared toward middle management and front line library staff, staff at all levels are welcomed. We look forward to seeing you at one of the sessions!
