The Empty Cup: Real Talk and Strategies for Addressing Burnout in Library Staff at ALL Levels

Presented by Shannan Hicks Consulting

Sunday, March 10th

1:00 PM- 4:00 PM

COVID. Quarantine. PPE. Book Bans. Mental Health. Difficult Patrons. Over the last 4 years, libraries have been on the front lines of seeing the world change. Absorbing all of that attendant trauma has caused massive burnout in all levels of staff. In this session, we will explore real ways to deal with burnout as individuals, staff members, managers and administrators. Attendees will leave with strategies that they can use immediately.

Members - $30

Self Defense Presentation

Presented by LSU Health Shreveport UCD Officer 

Sunday, March 10th

1:00 PM - 2:25 PM

Louisiana Libraries are located in various communities throughout the state. It is because of this reason that self-defense is needed for library workers. Many library staff closed at different times throughout the day and night. No matter the library, whether public, school, academic, or special, the welfare of library staff is of the utmost importance. This interactive session will train library staff to respond confidently to multiple types of attacks.
