Learn how to approach your practice, programs, and partnerships through a social emotional lens and better support yourself, colleagues, and your community.
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’ll learn actionable steps for embedding social emotional communication, restorative justice, and trauma-informed practices into all of your services, as well as ways to support wellness in yourself and your library at large.
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 Fridays, October 7, 14, and 21, from 2:00-4:30 pm ET (recordings available) 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!

Support the emotional well-being and self-care of staff and colleagues
Implement multiple conflict resolution methods
Incorporate the foundations of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into your practice and programs

Each kit is rooted in Every Child Ready to Read standards, Social Emotional Learning core competencies, and dialogic reading skills. With over 19,000 downloads since launching in 2017, the kits have been used to address the traumas experienced by Napa Valley following the second set of devastating wildfires they experienced in 2020 and are being adapted for use in Highland Park, IL following the deadly mass shootings which took place there in 2022.
