School libraries promoting wellbeing in Australian primary and secondary schools: An exploratory study

Thursday, 27 August 2020


Edith Cowan University’s research project will receive approximately $90,000 in funding to look at how to support schools to provide frontline support for children’s wellbeing and mental health through their libraries as wellbeing hubs.

Chief Investigator, Dr Margaret Merga, will lead the exploratory project with partners at the Australian School Library Association and Murdoch University.

“While we know that school libraries can play an important role in supporting the wellbeing of young people, this project is a great opportunity for us to identify how schools can do this most effectively. This is particularly important with many school libraries struggling for funding in recent times, and the many challenges to wellbeing that our young people are currently facing,” Dr Merga said.
