Library Lockdown: An Introduction to Intruder Response Protocols in Libraries


Many libraries have plans and protocols in place to address floods, fires, and other natural emergencies, but few have plans and protocols in place to address the issue of violent intruders.

This presentation will cover: 1) the many forms an intruder response plan can take, 2) intruder response resources available in the New England region, 3) staff training opportunities, 4) easy steps any library can take to increase safety, and 5) the experiences of the Millis Public Library in establishing its plan.

Attendees will come away with the tools necessary to create their plans.
