Announcing the Return of TRLN Remote Rap Sessions

The first iteration of the TRLN Remote Rap Sessions took place April through June 2020 and was created in response to the number of library employees working from home due to COVID-19. To keep staff connected and encourage engagement between TRLN colleagues on a variety of topics, we are continuing the series through all of 2020. We see this as an opportunity for staff to learn new things about topics at least tangentially related to the work of our libraries, share their own expertise, and meet new colleagues across TRLN, while also enjoying and discussing a variety of films, podcasts, or readings.

Once per month, we have selected a title for discussion that you can watch, listen to, or read at a time that fits your schedule. Then we will have a scheduled discussion via Zoom for participants to discuss the title and what resonated with them. We will add information for specific titles and discussions to TRLN’s website as we schedule them.

We are also looking for people to help facilitate discussions so please feel free to reach out to info@trln.org if you or someone you know is interested. Interest in the topic is more important than expertise on the topic.
