The Duncan Library team has launched an impressive program of virtual events. Some sessions have been attracting between 50 and 100 attendees. These digital meetups include the weekly children’s storytimes, two monthly book clubs, the monthly Death Cafés, a monthly meditation led by Yoga in Daily Life, and the monthly meeting of the Friends of Duncan Library.
As per the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Some of the Zoom-based adult programs have actually drawn in more people than they did when they were held within the physical walls of the library. Virtual attendance right away exceeded expectations so much that Duncan Library now offers even more programs – classes, discussions, and presentations that are intended for online audiences.”
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The idea is that, if it’s impossible to escape to Duncan Library these days for a mind-opening experience, then Duncan Library can bring the experience to you. And, this mentality has brought significantly more people into the library’s orbit. All Duncan Library programming will remain over Zoom at least through the end of August, but the staff is looking forward to when in-person programming resumes.”
