The Healing Library: Zoom event -In Conversation with Megan Emery the creator of The Healing Library has been rescheduled for September 24th 3:00pm (Pacific Time)
The Healing Library was a project that started in the Fall of 2016 as a conversation between Kirsten Cappy of Curious City, a company which creates promotional experiences and materials for children’s books, and Megan Emery, then a student at Syracuse University earning her MLIS.
A need was determined to assist families after periods of trauma that encompassed many forms of healing, and the idea for our kits was born. We recognize that families are unique and deserve the opportunity to build their own journey of healing with the highest quality experiences and materials without the stress of research and shopping following their trauma.
A team was formed consisting of Megan: Author and former Experience Designer & Coordinator at the Chattanooga Public Library, Kirsten: Owner of Curious City, Bonnie Thomas: Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a passion for Art + Play Based Therapy, and David Moorhead: Children’s Librarian at the Lewiston Public Library (ME), who collaborated to create the original three kits to assist families on their healing journey.
The three kits were offered as free downloads in October of 2017 and our materials have been downloaded over 10,500 times to date.
