Compton, already in "summer job mode" is already preparing for Rock the Plaza 2020.

Although the entire Allen County Public Library system is closed during the Coronavirus pandemic, its Access Fort Wayne division has plenty of work to do as it continues to keep area residents informed and entertained.

No stranger to unexpected obstacles and contingency plans, its director, Norm Compton, is managing to stay ahead of the game with everything, while keeping himself and his team safely distanced. 

For a look at what all that includes, WBOI's Julia Meek caught up with Compton by telephone to discuss the variety of challenges that have surfaced, how they're being met and projects as well as new technology that the community has to look forward to once the restrictions are lifted.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
