Each person’s life experience can take them down different paths that ultimately lead to a similar goal.

How does one become a Library Manager without a MLIS? Life skills, work experience, and knowing what courses, workshops and support are needed to shape and expand your skills, are all necessary pieces of the puzzle.

Success as a Library Manager is the willingness to learn, communicate, recognize the significance and benefit of collaboration, and use the resources available to you.
