The staff at Appleton Public Library started using the toolkit in 2019. Assistant Director Tasha Saecker reports, “The toolkit will change how you approach public library service by giving you a common language to better care for yourself, your coworkers, and your community.”
This training is conducted by Rogers InHealth and brought to you by the Department of Public Instruction using LSTA funding from IMLS.
