Project poster

The West Coast has seen an increase in poor air quality due to wildfires. Witnessing first-hand the impact that smoke had on the Spokane community, I partnered with the Spokane Public Library to identify what the library could do to prepare for these events in the future. The result of this research and exploration is an ideas and resources guide that public libraries can use to help propel the conversation on how to help communities during episodes of poor air quality.
