Wellness Passport

The Wellness Subcommittee of the Staff Development and Training Advisory Committee is promoting an initiative to get library employees
out and walking to other units, promoting both physical wellness and knowledge of our fellow employees. Take the time to introduce yourself at the participating locations and look around at the different units.  Many units are newly remodeled or have interesting exhibits or displays.

Pick up a “Passport” to record your travels to all the participating library units in the Library Human Resources, room 127 Library starting Monday, October 1.

Each of the 34 participating libraries or units will stamp (or in some cases put a sticker on) the “passports” of individuals to show that they
have indeed traveled to that unit. 

The event will take place from October 1 to  October 31 and anyone who completes all of them will be entered in a drawing.  Turn in your
passport to Library Human Resources by 5 pm on Friday, November 1.  The drawing will take place the following week.

The event is open to all graduate assistants, academic hourlies, staff, academic professionals and library faculty.  Unfortunately, at this time
we will not be able to award prizes to undergraduate student assistants.

Thanks to those of you who have picked up your library passports and are participating in walking to other libraries, as well as to all the units
who’ve agreed to be locations.
