Virtual programming is programming, classes, and events offered through an online (Internet) platform, such as Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Zoom meetings, or pre-recorded video and/or audio that is shared to NCL's social media or website. Attendees can watch and participate (depending on the program) from their own Internet-enabled device (ex: smart phone, tablet, computer).
While the library facility and its Founder's Room community meeting room are closed to the public, NCL is testing the use of our social media, Zoom, and website platforms as a virtual community room. Programs, classes, and events presented this way adhere to our existing meeting room policy. Presenters offer informational, educational, or cultural content that is open to the public and does not require attendees to purchase anything or to pay the library or presenter to attend. Rarely, classes or workshops may require a materials fee, but this information would be made clear up front. Use of the library meeting room (physical or virtual) does not imply that library staff or Trustees endorse the viewpoints presented. The library does not provide medical advice, nor are the materials or programs presented through our facility or platforms a substitute for a professional medical opinion.
Please read the information provided about each program carefully to ensure that you are ready to access the program when it is offered. Each program may have unique instructions or links and may require that you download an app or prepare beforehand. Please be patient and kind as we learn and share, revise, and try again.
