First, everyone can check in and introduce themselves (if they choose)

Q1 - Does your library have any policies related to holiday/winter programming?

Q2 - Do you think winter programming should include or exclude holiday-specific programming?

Q3 - Have you had discussions in your library about this issue?

Q4 - Tell us about your favorite winter program!

Q5 - Do you have suggestions for the next few chats?
