Wellness Works! The Importance of a Healthy Workplace for Healthy and Happy Library Staff: A MidContinental Region Webinar

Class Details

Here is your chance to catch an encore presentation of this session that was offered at the ALA Annual Conference back in June. Libraries typically focus on the wellness of their communities and are not always considering how library staff are coping with workplace change, work-life balance, stress, and overall health and wellness. However, library staff are the key component to the library’s success so their well-being should be of utmost concern. Join our presenters Quanetta Batts and Steven Potter as they discuss how implementing a variety of health and wellness practices in their libraries have had a positive impact on their library employees.

Quanetta “Q” Batts, Program Director for Outreach & Engagement, the Ohio State University Libraries
Steven V. Potter, CEO and Library Director, Mid-Continent Public Library
