Libary specialist honored
Youth Specialist Brenda Garrett returned to the Tunica’s R.C. Irwin Library loaded with information and ideas gained from attending Librarianship 101 Institute, hosted recently by the Mississippi Library Commission at the Holiday Inn Express & Table 100 Conference Center in Flowood, Mississippi.
Participation in the ninth annual Institute was based on a statewide competitive selection process, with public library directors being asked to nominate staff members. Twenty-six participants representing 16 of Mississippi’s 51 public library systems attended the intensive, week-long training designed to introduce library paraprofessionals to all aspects of professional librarianship. Training ran the gamut from the history and governance of public libraries to practical skills designed to help participants provide better service to library patrons.
