More Public Library Staff Education Program "thanks"

"Thank you for the $14,000 received by five library science students that are staff members at the Contra Costa County Library.

I am delighted to let you know that over 25 current staff members of the Contra Costa County Library are enrolled in a program to obtain an MLS…In talking to our staff, it is clear to me that the availability of funds through the Public Library Staff Education Program has been a major factor in their ability to return to school.

The Contra Costa Library Commission wants you to know how important the Public Library Staff Education Program is to our ability to provide our quality library service in Contra Costa County.

Thank you for your continued support for LSTA funding that supports staff education and development."

- Anne Cain, County Librarian, Contra Costa County Library


"I am so pleased and excited to receive this California State Library Tuition Grant!  That will definitely make it easier for me to continue attending library school.  A big thank-you to the Contra Costa Library staff that oversee all the paperwork for this program!”

- Mary French, Clerk, Lafayette Library


"Thank you and the committee for selecting me to receive a LSTA grant for 2005-2006. Library school is interesting and difficult at the same time! The additional funds mean I can devote more time to school than working. This is a great program for people who want to be a public librarian. You have made a future children’s librarian very happy"

- Odetta Batis, El Sobrante Library


Summer CSL Connection Kudos

"I just read the latest CSL Connection. Please extend my thanks to everyone involved for an excellent and informative issue. The format is easy to navigate - the highlighted programs made me want to learn more - and the Radio literacy piece was inspiring.  I look forward to sharing this with my colleagues (both in the library, and in the city)."

- Kim Bui-Burton, Director,
Library, Museum & Cultural Arts, City of Monterey, Monterey Public Library
