    In response to increasing the prevalence and severity of mental health illnesses among university students, schools and universities have increased their well-being initiatives and programmes. Multiple campus entities, such as academic libraries, increasingly contribute to the well-being of students. Well-being influences academic outcomes; hence, libraries implement well-being efforts to enhance learning and student education in general. Library Therapeutic Landscape (LTL) is the concept of transforming libraries into environments conducive to healing. Therapeutic environments contribute to the health of students. The study explains LTL for social wellbeing. It analyses the gap and trend and provides suggestions for developing effective wellness initiatives. Finally, the article outlines LTL social well-being initiatives that improve students' well-being.
