Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Student loan debt levels are in the Trillions and the ways to get rid of educational debt are limited to repayment or forgiveness programs. Many are unaware that student loans are exempt from bankruptcy and basic consumer protections. As public servants, library staff are suffering in silence with debt and struggling to qualify for existing Public Service Loan Forgiveness programs. How can we make existing policies effectively work to help current staff, address retention concerns, and attract new talent to our profession? How can we advocate for making new policies that will help staff with educational debt management?
