Course Description 

Guest speaker sessions via Zoom:
Tuesdays, March 29, April 5, and 12, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm ET (recordings available)

Workshop:
Asynchronous, facilitator-led workshop over 3 weeks

Effectively serving the needs of your community requires an understanding of how to support their social and emotional needs in addition to their information and practical needs. It also requires self-care strategies and engagement tools for yourself, colleagues, and staff. You need to put on your own oxygen mask before you can help others! 

Join us for this guest speaker program and online workshop, where you’ll learn from experts how to support the ‘whole patron’ in your practice, programs, partnerships and services.

You’ll complete assignments to create your own initiative over 3+ weeks in an interactive online classroom environment with personal coaching from an expert in the field. In addition, you’ll have access to bonus content—rich supporting materials you can explore at your own pace, including a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors, readings, activities, and videos.

The live sessions run on Tuesday, March 29, April 5 and April 12, from 2:00-4:00 pm ET with an ongoing facilitator-led workshop over 3 weeks. All sessions will be recorded and can be viewed at your convenience. Don’t miss this opportunity!
