Since the Covid-19 Pandemic, online activities have increased exponentially. Public and school libraries have expanded their offerings and increased their online presence to ensure that patrons continue to access their services. Our school libraries in the Caribbean have not been given the attention they deserve and so are not equipped to function in the online world. Many kept their doors closed or the space reassigned for other activities. In instances Librarians have been assigned other tasks and information literacy skills placed on hold. In this time of online presence, our school libraries and librarians have a role to play in assisting our students navigate the information highway and to develop their literacy skills. There is also the likelihood that many online services will continue after the pandemic. Our school librarians and libraries in the Caribbean should be prepared to operate in the virtual space.
