Paraprofessional Round Table

The purpose of the Paraprofessional Round Table is to provide opportunities for paraprofessionals to meet regularly and exchange ideas. The Section seeks to offer workshops that encourage paraprofessional development as well as cooperation among its members in order to promote excellent library service. Specific objectives include the following:

  • To promote the recruitment and retention of library paraprofessionals in all types of libraries.
  • To sponsor workshops that address topics of interest to library paraprofessionals.
  • To investigate the possibility of establishing a library paraprofessional continuing education program within the state.
  • To offer financial aid to library paraprofessionals who wish to further their education.
  • To ensure that paraprofessionals among the state's libraries be recognized and affirmed.
