The Healing Library is a series of lendable kits your library can utilize to support families in their journey of healing after 3 specific periods of trauma. Through community connections, conversation, and meaningful interactions with picture books and holistic art & play therapy activities you can provide your local families with a platform for healing they can cater to their specific needs. Together we’ll explore:
- The free, downloadable contents of the kits
- How to assemble your own to reflect the needs of your library and community
- The Social Emotional Learning benefits possible utilizing the kits
- How the kits came to be and you can assemble your own kit reflective of your community’s needs
We’ll have time for questions, brainstorming, and virtual hugs (if needed).
