Cabré’s presentation title: Barcelona Libraries Consortium and COVID-19: the challenge of maintaining strong community ties with Children and young people.
Cabré’s presentation summary: The priority during the pandemic was people, and one of the biggest challenges was maintaining the link with the children and young people’s community. At first, libraries focused on the increase in online activities and services and more interlibrary cooperation among the region; Two and a half months later, the aim was directed to a progressive reopening of the libraries and resuming gradually our face-to-face services and activities.
