Public Library Academy

The Office of Library Development has posted its list of Librarian Certification courses for the Spring 2020 semester.

Online registration is now open. See class list below.

Certification Courses Registration

The Spring 2020 Public Library Academy class registrations will be processed online using Eventbrite. Register for each class by clicking on the link for the class you want to attend (see list below). This online system allows you to verify you are registered. In addition, you can see who else is attending and from where, so carpooling opportunities are identified.

There is a limit of 25 for each class and classes will NOT be held if less than 5 people register. You will be notified by e-mail if a class has been cancelled.

All class content is on the Public Library Academy website, click on the name of the class you are attending.

If any classes are full, you will be able to place your name on a waiting list if you register with an email address.

If you have any questions, contact Wendy J Noerdlinger via email or at 405.522.3322.
