The South Dakota State Library is excited to facilitate regional library training sessions in four regions of the state. These trainings are an opportunity for library directors, staff, and trustees to learn and network. All sessions are 10am - 3pm local time.

The Fall season will focus on policies and procedures from the point of view of Library Trustees and staff.


The Department of Education, of which the SD State Library is a division, is excited to present a new professional learning platform. Instructure Canvas will allow users to register for offerings, participate in learning experiences, and access records of training completed through this system. All items are considered "courses" within the platform even if they are webinars, workshops, conferences, or in-person events.
