An Infopeople Webinar

Tara BannonPresenter: Tara Bannon

Have you dared to imagine showing up to work as your whole self each day? Have you wanted to make the most of your natural inclination to create connections?

In this webinar we will discuss what happens when you take Readers Advisory, Reference, Customer Service, Social Work and Community Collaboration and mix it all up in each and every interaction! You will learn what holistici librarianship is and how you can be your whole self. We’ll cover many real-life library examples and leave with actionable steps to provide resources and meet customers where they are without depleting yourself.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Define Holistic Librarianship
  • Feel encouraged to show up as your whole self each day
  • Create space to authentically engage and connect
  • Leave with actionable ways to implement this immediately

In this webinar, the terms "Whole Person Librarianship" and "Whole Person Library Service" are used. These terms are the intellectual property of Sara Zettervall. For more information about her work in this area, please see the Whole Person Librarianship website.

This webinar will be of interest to: all library staff especially public facing staff.
