Who may apply?
The Leadership Academy is specially designed for MLS/MLIS degreed librarians who wish to develop their skills and learn to be leaders for their libraries. Librarians of any experience level are encouraged to apply.
What will I learn?
Participants will work closely with each other and with appointed mentors to explore what it means to be a leader and how they can make the choice to be a leader both personally and professionally. They will have the opportunity to network with other librarians and library leaders as well as a chance to participate in group projects that will benefit libraries across the state. Please note, participation in this workshop requires a one-year commitment to assigned Leadership Academy group project.
