Apply Now for SSLLI Year 15

If you are looking for an opportunity to grow personally and professionally, step forward in your career, and develop strengths you didn't know you had, consider applying for the Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute.

In year 15 of the Institute (beginning in October 2018), participants will meet at one of two locations: Cooper Memorial Library in Lake County (north of Orlando) and East County Regional Library near Fort Myers. Applications are available now through June 15th.  
Wondering if it's for you?  The Institute's best spokespeople are its participants, and NEFLIN member Kelly Bohannon, Clay County Public Library, couldn't have said it better:
"Even though the program is only at its halfway mark, I have gained so much knowledge that has already benefited myself as well as my staff. The leadership project that we work on for the duration of the class has introduced me to a new segment of our community and I have made some great friends who have begun to support our library in new ways.

I was told by another colleague when he heard I was accepted to SSLLI that it would change my life. I feel like my outlook has changed and I do feel an ownership of my position in a way I hadn't before. The future is bright and I can make my library a better place."
Spring Interest Groups Meetings Underway 
Spring Interest Group meetings

There's an Interest Group for everyone, so register for these  or one of the nine other group meetings scheduled between April and June. 
Children's Services folks:
Y our meeting will be held this  quarter at the Library Makerfest
on May 4th.  Come enjoy the festival and a lunch meeting with your colleagues - lunch is on NEFLIN!  Just register for the May 4th meeting as you normally would.

Please Note: 
Online Interest Groups are more effective when all attendees can chat with each other as if they were face-to-face.
