PDA Event: Motivating & Supporting Employees

Friday, February 25, 2022 - 8:00am to 12:30pm

In the last two years, libraries have had to evolve with the changing needs of patrons and the challenges brought on by a global pandemic. It has led to upheavals in organizational structures from retirements, resignations, and new hires. Many library workers are being asked to do more with less and take on multiple roles. How do both management and library workers create an environment that supports mental health?
