Why is certification important for public librarians?

Suzann H knows that “running a public library nowadays is like being in business. Finances, budgets, legislation, technology and staffing were not covered or have changed dramatically since library school but are now a necessary part of my current position. I’m learning as I go, but often times feel over my head in these areas. The Certified Public Library Administrator Program would fill a void and help those of us dedicated to public libraries to feel confident with the business aspects.”
