"I am excited today. Because you've got a guest on. This is a guess as a little out of the box. From who've you brought on before. And i'm really excited that rebecca salsas here and What what are you guys talking about today. yes so. I'm really excited. That rebecca was able to join us today. Rebecca is the executive director of the josephine county Library foundation and is really an integral part. The library there in just being county. Where grants pass. Where i live is located. And i just wanted to spend some time talking with rebecca about the value that libraries bring to our community and to our lives and so rebecca. Thank you so much for being here. Absolutely thank you for having me ma. It's our pleasure our pleasure so We tell us just a little bit about how long you've been working with the library and What your position entails right now so i have been through. Many different transitions At our library. And i've been working about eight years back. When the library was a nonprofit i was doing the fundraising and now i've transitioned over to the library foundation and i'm not the executive director and my job is to help raise funds to support special programs and things that are outside of the library. District's budget very nice. Very nice and and i know there's a long history there with what happened in josephine county with the library system Do you want to just give a brief overview of that of what happened to it. Seems like almost twenty years ago now with libraries being defended and then what what happened in the community after that absolutely so in two thousand and eight the libraries were closed and e funded and the community really rallied. They wanted to have a library in their communities so it was a grassroots efforts and they raced funds and was able to st- originally started out of you know checking out. Books are lending out books in their vehicles in a parking lot and then they were able to raise enough money to open up. The libraries and tons of work was involved with that and our library system. Which has four branches. One in grants pass one in williams one out in the ohio valley and one out of wolf creek operated as a nonprofit for ten years so phenomenal work. I'm and it was really exciting to see a community so passionate and really finding the value of libraries in a community because there there weren't a whole lot of libraries being run as nonprofits at that time. We're there no. Our library system is kind of like a unicorn very unique. We had over three hundred volunteers at one time. Doing all of that work which is just amazing. And even within it becoming a nonprofit. There were still three over three hundred volunteers that were checking in books. Checking out books doing all of that work. In fact we have about two hundred fifty volunteers. That still are doing that. Work today. so wonderful i my. My sister has has volunteered to the library. Here for years before covid. Kind of shut down the the day to day operations of checking in and out books but What what. I wanted to kind of touch on i. I remember this is this is my embarrassing story is probably sixteen. Seventeen years ago. I was much younger and definitely not as wise and i was standing in line at a community event here in jackson county and we were at the library and i had made an offhand comment about. Why do people need libraries anymore. and what. i didn't realize. I was standing right behind. One of the board members for the jackson county library and she took me to task for about five minutes explaining the value of libraries to the community. So i would love for you to just take a minute And i'm gonna humbly ask why our library still relevant today. It's a great question and we hear it quite often. Actually you know not. Everyone has the same resources in today's world and libraries are the technology access points for so many people and we see that even more now that we've endured through a pandemic and libraries as a whole. There's just so much more than book. Repositories the cultural and community centers. And our library here in grants pass even attracts more foot traffic then the local post office so when you think about all those long lines in the post office and how busy it always. Is your library here. Josephine community library is is busier than that. And really we service as venues for community meetings host workshops from anything of you wanna learn about coating to changing a tire and i could also take a task for a long time about the importance of libraries. But just a couple numbers to run by. You is each month. More than twenty. Two thousand items are checked out. And they're in homes within our community and in a county where at least a third of our residents don't have computer or internet access at home patrons lock more than fifteen thousand computer sessions in a year and have nearly forty three thousand personal devices. Connect to the library's wifi so it is a library is so much more than just books in building. It's really an important piece of the community where people can connect and grow. I just can't agree more promptly. What got me back into. The library was have having a daughter. She's six now. You know taking her back to the library to have those experiences in the children's roman being able to kind of just see the books touch the books and kind of just have that that feel of what a library feels like is just phenomenal. I know you. There's just so many Children's programs happening at the library is as well absolutely and we have families with kids of all ages coming to participate. Whether it's our summer reading program we have sensory story times the dolly parton imagination library program or registering kits through josephine county to receive free books.

Virtual eviction hearings can make horrible situations even worse
"Millions of americans remain unemployed in this pandemic and can't pay their rent so people are being evicted. All over the country eviction hearings have moved to zoom or webex or even the phone to limit the spread of covid nineteen in courtrooms but some tenants advocates say. The virtual hearings violate people's rights. There aren't procedures in place for people who don't have broadband access for example translators that would be required in court aren't required online. Eileen guo is a senior reporter on tech policy ethics and social issues at mit tech review. She's been reporting on this and she described a hearing she attended in jackson county missouri. I listened in on a hearing where the person was the victim to end being affected by phone. The lawyer for the landlord was appearing. I video and the judge was by video and her call and her hearing was interrupted three times because the call was dropped she was trying to present evidence so paper documents that no one could see and on the other hand the landlord and the judge where referring to documents that have been submitted in advance that she couldn't see the judge herself recognized that this was such an issue that when she was scheduling the hearing for another ten. That was calling in. She suggested that she appear in person. Because appearing virtually disadvantage her. It seems like it's confusing and also like this feels like it's not a good way to do work in some cases right like it's not always even a good way to do a meeting let alone and addiction like how did it come to this so in theory courts moving to video conferencing could have been a good thing it was meant to be a public health measure so the cares act allowed for courts to to think about whether or not they wanted to allow more actions and more court procedures to be virtual to prevent the spread of covid nineteen in these small courtrooms as well as in the hallways by it kind of goes against the spirit of the cdc eviction moratorium which was passed in early september which specifically was looking to prevent evictions because there are clear links between housing instability and covid nineteen right but what if anything did courts due to accommodate people who don't have reliable internet or have no internet access at all. It's not really clear what courts have done to to make this process more accessible and it's really a court by core and in some case judged by judge decision there have been courts that have said that they are making greater accommodations for people with disability. That are appearing that they are providing interpreters that if as a tenant that is appearing in these courts you have some issue you can email the court in advance and express these issues to them but all of that kind of assumes that there's the space lied access to technology which in a lot of cases just is not the case that was eileen grow a senior reporter at mit tech review many statewide eviction moratorium sephardi past and unless lawmakers extended the federal eviction.
