Librarian certification for public library directors has been a part of Wisconsin law since 1921 when the legislature passed the first comprehensive state public librarian certification law. The concern was then, and continues to be, that the public libraries of the state be headed by qualified library personnel, assuring a high level of professional management and administration of Wisconsin's library resources, programs and services.
Public library systems in Wisconsin participate in the certification process for public library directors by designating staff to serve as validators of the continuing education activities of certificate holders. For more information on the certification renewal process, see the Certification Manual for Wisconsin Public Library Directors.
