Are you a new or newish public librarian? Are you experienced but starting a new position? Are you a student who wants to learn more about being a public librarian? It sounds like you could really use a mentor! Fortunately, the Public Library Community of Interest is putting together a mentoring program just for you! Mentors and mentees will be paired in January 2019.
See the Conference Page for more information.
