Date/Time: Wednesday, June 15th at 11am-12:15pm PST/2-3:15pm EST. 

As ours is a service role which incorporates instruction and engagement with a variety of publics, library workers can find ourselves committed to a broad swath of projects and stretched a bit too thin. This session will invite participants to discuss recognizing signs of overcommitment and strategies for avoiding it. This discussion is important in a profession in which burnout is rampant in the best of times and as we enter the third year of a pandemic whose uncertainties challenge our mental health. The session is aimed at teaching each other to exercise boundary-setting practices that preserve our wellness, capacities for compassion, and work-life balance. 

This virtual discussion is free and open to all.  A recording will be made available after the session to all registrants.

To participate in the moderator’s crowdsourced honorarium, see payment information below. If 100 attendees contribute $5 each, the moderator will receive a $500 honorarium.
