This article comes from and Australian librarian discussing the importance of an elementary library catering to the well being of the whole child. The library is the central point of a school where students come for a variety of reasons. Whether it is to hang out with friends, be a refuge from the weather or playground, or simply to have some time to enjoy a book, the library is no longer a quiet place where students only enjoy books.  Learning how libraries can support students’ wellbeing by being the place needed for individuals is an important part of an elementary librarian’s job.
