ABLE (available now): The newly updated, online Alternative Basic Library Education (ABLE) Program, provides basic library knowledge and skills for staff members who have no formal education in library science. Anyone interested in improving their knowledge of library basics is welcome to take these courses, which are getting positive reviews from users and have even been used internationally.

Turning the Page 2.0—Libraries Building Communities: (registration opens June 1, 2013): The Public Library Association’s successful Turning the Page program is coming to Idaho. This fall, starting in September, members of the Idaho library community will join members of the Washington library community to participate in the six-week online series, which takes participants through the steps of developing a plan for promoting libraries as anchor institutions. In addition, we will share how Idaho libraries can get involved with the OCLC Geek the Library program, which provides assistance in various areas for libraries to implement their action plan.
