Building Empathetic Collections: Fostering Empathy and Kindness in your Community [NEO-RLS: Webinar]

April 28, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Literature creates a gateway to help library patrons understand concepts of empathy, compassion and kindness. Creating a curated collection of library resources inspires and fosters understanding of others and different perspectives and is the foundation of building a climate of empathy in the library. Empathy is transformative and can bring about positive change in the community.
