Continuing Education at NEO-RLS:  Maximizing library potential together


Below are our upcoming CE opportunities, in-person and online.   Check back regularly to stay informed of newly posted workshops and webinars.

At NEO-RLS, we're constantly working with member libraries and partner organizations to develop and deliver the local, collaborative and member-based continuing education opportunities you want.

Outside our 22 county region, libraries that belong to their regional (NORWELD, SERLS, SWON) may register for CE opportunities as a NEO-RLS Bronze member.
