Continuing Education

The Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Oklahoma Library Association believe that library staff must increase their skills & knowledge through Continuing Education. This upgrades the library profession, enriches the librarian, and promotes quality library service. On this page you will find the classes offered through the Public Library Academy as well as online classes and forms.
