Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

How do I get Continuing Education Units for attending Children's Book Festival events?

You may receive CEU credits for free if you attend the CBF events. You will receive a CEU verification sheet with your registration packet. As you attend events, you record the credits on your verification sheet. At the end of the festival you turn in your sheet and we send them to the Mississippi Library Commission for approval. MLC sends the certificates back to us and we then mail them to you. The process takes approximately two months.


How do I know if my CEUs will apply?

The CEU credits awarded at the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival are awarded by the Mississippi Library Commission and therefore apply to Mississippi institutions. If you would like to earn credits outside of the state, you will need to contact your state department of education. For more information contact Lorietha Myers at the Mississippi Library Commission. 1-800-MISS LIB (647-7542), (601) 432-4111, or 1-800-446-0892 (BPHLS)


Is there an additional cost to get CEUs?

No, there is no extra cost involved.
