In an effort to document the unique Zeitgeist of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crossing the Divide has created a limited video series, Life Under Lockdown, where we interview individuals, businesses and organizations impacted by a society in limbo while the battle against an insidious disease rages all around us. How has a life under lockdown altered our realities and how will it continue to shape human existence moving forward? To keep our podcast listeners occupied while we channel efforts toward this video endeavor, we are releasing the audio track from this video, recorded via Zoom and available in video format on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. In Episode 3, MCPLD: Enriching Lives Online, we check in with Mesa County Public Libraries' Associate Director Shana Wade, who fills us in on how and why the library moved so quickly to mitigate the spread of the infection and closed down facilities long before many other organizations. Shana details all of the services still available through the library's website and how teachers, students and workers on the hunt for new employment can rely on library services to keep life moving forward. Find out how the library will phase into in-person access and what we can expect in the months ahead.
