Looking for more quality continuing education? We hear you! In fact, we’ve started a national conversation with the library community and our partners to find out exactly what libraries need to elevate their role as the mission driven civic asset in the communities they serve. So, please check back in, because we’re checking with you, and soon you will see even more innovative learning opportunities on our calendar like the following:

  • Library Displays and Merchandising Bootcamp
  • Superpower Leadership
  • Trauma-informed Services in Libraries
  • Asset-based Community Development

To stay current with new offerings as they are added, you can subscribe to the IFPTraining list or subscribe to our training feed. You can also download and browse through this learning catalog for a comprehensive look at our online course offerings. See this page for more information about ALA's LSSC program.
