 Being Librarian in a Time of Coronavirus - Virtual Appointments

What can we do for you?  In a closed library your research access is zero.  So how can we better share our library resources with our members?  Would a Virtual Library Appointment via Video Conferencing be a helpful substitute for face to face library assistance?     


If Librarians and Members want a Virtual Library Appointment program, help us make it happen by responding not later than September 5th to our Survey questions below:

         1. Member:  Would you use this CCGS service?

         2. Librarian:  Would you come into the library under Coronavirus safety rules on a limited basis to conduct a Virtual Appointment?

         3. Librarian:  Would you choose to participate in this CCGS librarian team that will continue to offer assistance to our Member genealogical researchers and family historians.      


Simply answer “yes” or “no” to each question in your Email response and send answers to Library Director at
