Message from the Association of Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) - for additional information and details, please visit the ARSL web page noted below.

The Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) has announced the Outstanding in Their Field Leadership Institute. This is a wonderful growth opportunity for a group of library folks that may often feel left out of the professional discussion. The Institute is for library workers who are currently working in rural and/or small library from various backgrounds and ethnicities. We're encouraging applications from folks who may not have a Masters in Library and Information Science and maybe not even a college degree. If you love serving your community through librarianship, and your library has very limited funds for professional development or attendance at conferences; if you're a library lifer with or without a library degree and you want to up your library game - this Institute is for you. All participant travel, materials, and instructional expenses (worth approximately $8000) are covered by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

If you're interested in learning more about the Institute or know someone who might be a good fit for this opportunity, please visit the ARSL Outstanding in Their Field website at https://arsloutstanding.org/<https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Farsloutstanding.org%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cwhites29%40michigan.gov%7Ca62b863872264337d97308d8b31f9f53%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637456295691644881%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=8Wa95Al%2FNdt2mV3TM7hMz9QnbNMH9OCCAay7v3nCYZk%3D&reserved=0>.
