In the spring of 2010, ten librarians requested their administrator’s certification and nine librarians achieved re-certification. The latter list is expected to grow from a trickle to a flood this summer. The Certification Program for Kansas Library Administrators was launched in July of 2007 and over fifty librarians still need to request their re-certification by the end of August, 2010.
All certified librarians should remember to check the date on their initial certificate. Their certification must be renewed by the same date three years later. The training requirement is 45 contact hours for all levels of certification.
It seems impossible that the program is three years old. It has certainly been a most eventful three years, and has included a LOT of learning for Kansas librarians.
The following librarians received their certification in the spring of 2010:
Justin Ball of Derby Public Library
Virginia Clark of Prescott City Library
Jordan Doughty of Derby Public Library
Tamara English of Derby Public Library
Vicky Jones of Pottawatomie-Wabaunsee Regional
Adrienne Olejnik of Rossville Community Library
Carol Robison of USD 505 Chetopa – St. Paul
Joanna Runyon of Smith Center Public Library
Nancy Snyder of Derby Public Library
Julia Wilson of Centralia Community.
The following librarians won their re-certification in the spring of 2010:
Judy Bennett of Derby Public Library
Joan Cales of Winfield Public Library
Gloria Creed-Dikeogu of Ottawa University Library
Lena Dick of Mary Sommerville Library in Mound City
Rebecca Dodd of Wellsville City Library
Sandra Freidline of Caney City Library

The State Library staff members offer their congratulations to these librarians.
