Welcome to the READS Repository!
The READS Repository is a publicly accessible Google Drive featuring Programming, Social Media, and Technical Training resources, plus SO MUCH MORE, submitted from libraries across the state. This database is a living organism administrated by the READS Vice President, and will house everything from guidelines for virtual programming, to fun reading-themed memes for your social media pages.
Anyone who has created an Adult or Reference Service related document is encouraged to share it on this platform!
Submission couldn’t be easier:
- Email your PDF, png, jpeg, or Word document, to READSrepository@gmail.com
- Use the subject line: Steal This Content!
Recently, we asked libraries to submit their Curbside and Contact-less Services Infographics, as well as their Phased Reopening posters. To view these, and explore the Repository, click HERE or go to: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1wte-uMGNKQ6P7q1Tpv9XTLNwu71j96Us?usp=sharing
