Hello Community and Junior College Libraries Section!
Our CJCLS Mentoring Pilot Program was a success and we are now accepting applicants for the 2022-2023 (8-month) mentoring program. Pilot program participants shared many positive experiences. Comments included:
- A positive experience and plan to participate again in fall.
- This was very helpful for me to be able to talk with another director about the challenges we are facing.
- Found it very beneficial to talk to someone further along in their career who is specific to the college setting.
