Congratulations to CPLA and LSSC Graduates!

Congratulations to those who have recently become credentialed through the Certified Public Library Administrator (CPLA) or Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) programs. Those who earn these designations are proven leaders in all aspects of the library profession.

The CPLA program is a voluntary, post-MLS certification program for public librarians with three or more years of supervisory experience. CPLA candidates must successfully complete coursework in seven of nine competency/standard areas.  To earn the LSSC, candidates must first meet the eligibility requirements and then successfully complete six of ten competency sets.

These graduates have gained confidence in the workplace by increasing their knowledge and understanding of total library operations and services. As a result, they have earned the respect and admiration of colleagues and community members alike.  

If you want to become a part of this elite group of individuals or to learn more about these programs, visit the ALA-APA Certification News page.
