Through intentional mentorship, hands-on learning at the 2024 and 2025 ARSL conferences, and online learning sessions with subject matter experts the ARSL Leadership Institute will help to elevate the impact of rural and small libraries nationwide by cultivating passionate, thoughtful library leaders who care deeply about the communities they serve.

There is no direct cost to participate in the Institute, and significant support will be available to assist with travel and lodging expenses related to the two ARSL Conferences participants will be expected to attend.
