The St. Peter Public Library announced that Leticia Snow, assistant library supervisor, has been selected to join in the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) Outstanding in Their Field Leadership Institute as part of the 2021-22 cohort.

Beginning in August 2021, this group of 30 library professionals from around the country will engage in residential, online, and conference experiences, spanning 18 months, to deepen their understanding of and commitment to professional values, while they gain practical managerial skills.

ARSL’s Leadership Institute is unique, because its students are selected from only small and/or rural libraries. Often these are “accidental librarians” who have no formal education in librarianship (in the form of a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science) and few local resources for library-specific professional development.
