Picture it: You have been selected, along with thirty-one other library staff, from a pool of applicants from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Washington and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. You arrive at a retreat location away from family, friends, and colleagues. You will be joined by eight seasoned mentors, library leaders who have also been selected for this experience, as well as by two institute leaders with a long commitment to developing strong libraries. For the next five days, you will learn, listen, discuss, and experience, with one purpose: to develop your potential.
