Bibliotherapy in Libraries Summit: Healing Through Story

Bibliotherapy refers to the use of reading for therapeutic purposes, and as library people, we’ve all seen the way stories can transform, empower, and heal. Learn more about the affective benefits of reading and how libraries can use these ideas to positively impact the wellbeing of our patrons, communities, and ourselves, even if you’re not a licensed mental health professional.

The virtual Bibliotherapy in Libraries Summit offers day-long programming around the concept of bibliotherapy in collection development, readers’ advisory, programming, outreach, and more. Come away with the tools and knowledge to help your library community find “shelf help.” All sessions will be recorded and made available to all registrants.

The WLA and the WA State Library will work together to make clock hours available for as many sessions as possible.


State-Wide Access Registration form opens August 21.

Individual and Organizational Registration forms open September 18.
