Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are extending the Public Library Accreditation expiration dates for all public libraries by 1 year. So, there will be no Accreditation process in 2020.
Accreditation expiration dates have changed as follows:
- 2020 to 2021
- 2021 to 2022
- 2022 to 2023
The change has already been made in our system, and libraries will see their new expiration year in the Accreditation Status listing.
If you require a new paper Public Library Accreditation certificate, please contact Linda Babcock and ask for a new certificate.
In addition, we will not be holding Public Library Accreditation and Community Needs Workshops this year.
We know that libraries are already coping with so many issues, and the Accreditation program doesn’t need to be another thing to worry about. Accreditation can wait a year. At this time, we do plan to resume the program in 2021.
Please contact Christa Porter if you have any questions.
