Need a mentor? MLA has you covered!

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.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about your special area of public library interest from an experienced professional and form a bond of friendship with another librarian from the state. Eligible mentees must be members of the Missouri Library Association and must be able to commit to at least one meeting per month for up to a year with your mentor. Meetings can be held via phone, e-mail, or in person. Anyone who is interested in having a mentor is encouraged to fill out a mentoring sign-up sheet.
