Hello Colleagues and Potential Candidates! (Those interested in a career at a Library)
The Library Support Staff Certification Program (LSSC), a national certification program that allows library support staff and volunteers who have reached the one year of experience mark (1820 hours) to demonstrate competencies and be certified by the American Library Association.
Several Webinars are available to tell you about the courses and programs, the ways to satisfy classes, and how to proceed with your application and certification.
On average the cost for admission to this program is $350.00, with the estimated cost of $2,000.00 to complete the certification process. In this day of raising college expenses and the MLA program in the $30,000 range after you have completed your BS degree, this may be the foot in the door you need. Several courses from several colleges can be accepted by the certification board. See their website for all the necessary information.
Webinars will explain the value of this certification to library support staff, employers and library users. Attendees will also have the opportunity to have their questions answered by program staff members.
For more information on LSSC please visit their website.
Come join us at the Library, it’s a great place to work and show your support.
Barbara Hamze, LA II, Fremont Main Library
