ACRL National Library Marketing and Outreach Interest Group (LMOIG)- Greater NYC Meetup

Libraries have frequently promoted wellness programs such as therapy dogs or meditation, which are staples in hospitals, schools, and other organizations, to promote mental wellness and lessen anxiety. And while wellness programming has been around long before COVID, they are important in this time of collective grief and anxiety post-COVID.
For our summer 2023 meeting, we seek short, lightning round presentations that showcase how libraries develop events and programs that promote mental wellness like therapy animals, meditation, yoga, and other forms of support for the community.
