“Librarians Build Communities” Scholars Kick-off Workshop Held at Valdosta State, Autumn 2011.

By Linda R. Most, Assistant Professor, MLIS Program, Valdosta State University.

The third cohort of “Librarians Build Communities” (LBC) scholars began classes in August 2011 in Valdosta State University’s Master of Library and Information Science program. The three-year program provides scholarships to prepare 45 students to be public librarians who have expertise in community building. It is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program. In collaboration with the Valdosta State University Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program the Georgia Public Library Service is providing each qualifying student with a full in-state tuition scholarship to the 39-semester-hour mostly online program.
