Each year, Library Development coordinates a Summer Library Institute providing professional development, training and networking opportunities for non-MLS public library staff serving mostly small and rural libraries throughout Arizona.
During the five-day Institute, highly regarded library professionals provide learning experiences and training on a variety of topics designed to increase participants' job skills and knowledge.
The 2023 Summer Institute will be held June 5 - 9 at Yavapai College, in Prescott, Arizona.
The application period for 2023 has closed.
The 2023 Summer Library Institute is open to candidates who:
- are currently employed in a library serving fewer than 100,000 people
- are in a leadership role in their library
- neither have, nor are pursuing, a MLIS/MLS degree
Please contact Melissa Kummen with any questions.
The Arizona State Library Summer Institute is supported with federal LSTA funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
