    Does your state require completion of the master's program to become a librarian? I checked on this about a year ago for my state and was told that I would have to complete the master's program. I was hoping I could just take the certification test. The college I got my bachelors from no longer offers it. According to a college degree look up website thing, only four colleges in my state offer the masters program. I'm going to double check tomorrow about it. I guess I'm hopeful they've changed it, lol. Just curious about your state's requirements.

    Thanks for the info. I've been searching all over our state (Oklahoma) website. I haven't been able to find anything real helpful. :| I can't even find 2015 testing dates.

    My state does not require a masters degree for a library endorsement.

    I was curious after having subbed as the elem. ed librarian numerous times (and it being asked of whether I had looked into the positions before), and I think I found that it does require it. Not 100% sure, as I could mistakenly be remembering looking it up for my wife in terms of the public library, but I think that's what I found...
