APA Wellness Website Re-Launched

The newly re-designed APA Wellness website and logo was recently relaunched.  This project is based on ALA President (2007-2008) Loriene Roy’s Circle of Wellness Initiative.  Ted Chaffin, Sara Jeffress, Jennifer Turner, and Laura Warren-Gross–all members of the 2008 cohort of ALA Emerging Leaders–created the Circle of Wellness website and several accompanying tools.  In the spring of 2016, the website’s content, tools, organization, and design were updated by Amanda Avery, Dory Cochran, and Jennifer McElroy, members of the 2016 cohort of ALA Emerging Leaders.  The site was designed to provide resources to help library workers achieve a well-rounded life which include all seven dimensions of wellness: physical, social, environmental, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and occupational.  With today’s changing workplace dynamics, this valuable resource is needed now more than ever.
