Fresh Faces

Nominate a colleague (or yourself) to be one of 2020’s Fresh Faces

The Fresh Faces program highlights the contributions of public library staff throughout Kentucky and encourages idea-sharing among regions, specialties, and library sizes.

Each year, KPLA selects eight members – two from each KDLA region – whose ideas and efforts are moving their libraries into the future.

KPLA members of any age who have been in their current position (full or part-time, certified or uncertified) in a public library for five years or fewer are eligible.

Honorees will be announced at the 2019 KLA meeting and receive a complimentary full registration for the 2020 KPLA Spring Conference. They will also be recognized in print and online and have opportunities to learn from KPLA executive leadership, committee chairs, and fellow Fresh Faces participants.

Don’t miss this opportunity to help a deserving colleague grow in their career and to let the rest of the state know about the great work that’s being done at your library.

Deadline for nominations is September 30, 2019. Please apply below.
