Certification

South Dakota Public Librarian Certification Program

The South Dakota State Library oversees a voluntary certification program for South Dakota public library directors and library staff. The goals of this program are to help library directors and staff acquire, maintain, and develop skills through continuing education in order to provide better library service to their communities. Through this program, the State Library recognizes public library directors and staff who update their knowledge and skills on a continuing basis.

An individual's certification is valid for three (3) years. To renew at the same level will require 30 contact hours of continuing education during that 3-year period.

Applications for 2017 are no longer available.

Watch this page next year for more details on 2018.

For a listing of the South Dakota librarians who have received certification, please review the following articles and press releases:
