The Wyoming Library Leadership Institute began in 2000


The 2018 Institute will be held in Lander, WY on July 19th and 20th at the local Community College Campus. Those selected will be scheduled to arrive on the 18th and will be staying at a local hotel that night and the next. Accommodations will be paid for by the institute.

On the evening of the 18th, the group will meet together at the hotel for supper and to discuss the following day’s events.

We have a spectacular keynote speaker lined up for the mornings of the 19th and 20th (more information to come) and the afternoon sessions will be full of guest speakers and activities.

Meals will be provided for from the evening of the 18th to lunch on the 20th.

Our main focus this year is Teamwork and Leadership. We are extremely excited about the direction this Institute is taking and highly urge you to apply!

Is this right for you? 

You could be new in the field, or you could have an established career. You could work in a school, academic, special or public library. The Institute is the place for you as long as you have the necessary spark to lead the Wyoming libraries of tomorrow!
The Library Leadership Institute exists to provide opportunities for learning, mentoring and developing leadership skills to promote the personal and professional growth of the Wyoming library community.
The institute is a tool for nurturing both degreed and non-degreed individuals in leadership roles. It is not a workshop on becoming a library director or a workshop on library administration.

  Application Process

Interested individuals should consider applying if they want to learn more about leadership potential and style. 
The application process is competitive. 8-10 will be selected to attend, and those attending are expected to take future committee and leadership responsibilities in the Wyoming Library Association (WLA), WYLD Network, educational committees and other library initiatives.

Individuals associated with all types of libraries (academic, public, school and special) are invited to apply. Trustees, support staff, paraprofessionals, library media specialists and librarians are eligible (trustees must have at least one year remaining in the term of his or her appointment at the time the institute is held). Your leadership role in the Wyoming library community is not based on job title.
