Academic libraries at secular and public institutions are accommodating students' spiritual lives through transformation of library spaces. Former study rooms and other library nooks are re-purposed to provide space for prayer, meditation and other reflective practices that support student well-being and success. Learn about libraries that have created these spaces, how they manage them, and the feedback they received from their campus communities. Additionally, discover the benefits and challenges of library prayer spaces, and leave with best practices for accommodating student spirituality and well-being at your library.
