With 37 participants, the 6th co-hort of the Public Library Leaders (PLLeaders) program has launched today. Under the new leadership of Lita Barrie, CEO, Burlington Public Library. Participants will meet twice a month for the next 16 months for in-depth discussions about issues facing libraries and lessons in leadership, before graduating at the 2025 OLA Super Conference.
The program was significantly re-built during COVID to include virtual panels and lectures. The participants in the previous co-hort campaigned for a third in-person session. The co-hort will meet in person in Vancouver in October, Montreal in May, and Toronto in January 2025.
