PLA Plans Webinars on Millennial Book Clubs and the Trauma-Informed Approach

The Public Library Association (PLA) will host two upcoming webinars: Millennials Haven’t Ruined Book Club: Hosting a Book Club for Millennials (Nov. 14, 2019, at 2 p.m. EST) and Why Trauma-Informed?: A PLA Social Worker Task Force Webinar (Nov. 18, 2019, at 2 p.m. EST).

In Millennials Haven’t Ruined Book Club, representatives from West Palm Beach Public Library in Florida “will discuss how to start a book club for millennials, how to get them through the door, and how to keep them coming back. It will cover all stages of book club management, including planning, marketing, facilitating and sustainability.”

Why Trauma-Informed? will feature members of PLA’s Social Worker Task Force, who are social workers in public libraries. “The trauma-informed approach to library service presumes that every person who walks through your library's doors has experienced some degree of trauma or stress in their lifetime. … [F]ollowing a trauma-informed approach can relieve the pressure that results from managing difficult situations while creating an environment of collaboration and trust at the library.”

For more information, including pricing, read the press release.
