Two more trustees have achieved certification in the Kansas Library Trustee Certification Program, bringing the total to 129. Well over a quarter of Kansas library trustees are enrolled in the program.
Wesley McCoy, Olathe Public Library, received certification on June 30. Elizabeth Griebat, Morrill Public Library in Hiawatha, received her certification on August 10.
The libraries in Olathe and Hiawatha have both been wonderfully supportive of the trustee certification program. The State Library staff offers congratulations to these citizens who give so much time to these two communities.
The next Statewide Training for Trustee Certification will be held in October. Trustees who are able to attend the workshops on Saturday, October 3, and Saturday, October 17, will meet all requirements for trustee certification.
Trustees who cannot attend statewide training workshops can gain core skill credits through system workshops, board meeting tutorials or by taking WebJunction Kansas desktop courses. A list of WebJunction courses and the core skills they will meet is available at:
Any librarian or trustee with questions about the certification program is welcome to call Shannon Roy at 785-296-2148 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
