COVID-19 Resources for Librarians

During the COVID-19 global pandemic, libraries find themselves serving in the role of second responders by providing services such as accurate, timely information about the pandemic; broadcasting WiFi in parking lots to support virtual learning and working; and providing services that ensure the health and recovery of community life.

The information on these pages is curated to assist public libraries with those services.

Vaccine Information

Arkansas is currently in Phase 1-B of the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan. Arkansans currently eligible to receive the vaccine include those who are 65 or older as well as those who work in education including K-12, child care and higher ed. Vaccinations are also now available for those who work in food manufacturing. Although public library staff are not specifically identified in Phase 1-B, public library staff may contact their community pharmacy to determine eligibility as public libraries continue to play an essential role in the educational process.
