Other Continuing Education Resources

Maine is a part of Webjunction which offers many library learning opportunities online.

Take a look at the statewide library calendar of events (such as the annual Reading Round-Up conference in April) which provides excellent opportunities as well.

 Check out the Maine State Library for Continuing Education opportunities

The Maine State Library also offers a Voluntary Public Library certification program with online webinar courses that can be used by School Library Media Specialists and Ed Techs for re-certification and re-authorization.

Consider joining the Executive Board of a professional library association such as MASL.  You'll have insight into library concerns and most will provide contact hours for attending meetings -- Contact the association you are interested in for more details.

Don't forget that if you are a member then you may qualify for financial assistance to attend conferences or take classes.
