Please come back and visit this page again soon as we will be listing our activities, partners and sessions that will focus on OUR Health and Wellness as well the Health and Wellness of our library programs!

We plan to:
Have organized early morning and late evening walks around the beautiful John Q. Hammons/Embassy Suites facility.
Encourage attendees to use the spacious fitness room located in the Embassy Suites.
Provide weighted hula hoops for you to try and to purchase.


Have some booths with health-related pamphlets and information for you to take home.

Deb Logan, one of our keynote speakers, will present a session on the AASL Health and Wellness Toolkit and Advocacy Crisis Toolkit. This session is designed to help you position your program to keep its clean bill of health and to provide you with the first aid strategies needed in the event of a crisis situation. In fact, all of Ms. Logan's presentations will include terms such as: "influence, credibility and excitement for your library program", "sending the right messages", " involve students in using data to inform and improve practice". All of these strategies will contribute to a "Healthy" library program.

Here's a document that demonstrates the basic yoga poses to be used on a mat or in a chair.
