Professional Development and Education

PDE Director

Kevin Washburn,

Join our new LinkedIn Group Page for Professional Development and Career-Related information.


The Professional Development and Education Section of NCSLMA was established to provide our members with tools and resources that serve as a gateway for continuous improvement. 

With a focus on "Future-Ready" school libraries, PDE is in the process of developing a statewide mentorship program for new practitioners to the field of school librarianship.  Recognizing that standards impact our work, PDE will facilitate alerts,  discussion, and training where appropriate. 

Members have asked for timely professional development tools and resources, and NCSLMA is committed to addressing this need.  The PDE Webinar section will communicate and facilitate topic driven online training that will be available through a virtual meeting and archive storage file. 

PDE is a new section, and we are striving to serve the needs of members.  If you have a comment, suggestion, or observation, please contact Dr. Kevin M. Washburn at
