Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Libri Foundation Alternative

Picture books in a library
I just found out that the Libri Foundation, an organization that has provided many libraries in our system with grant funds to help them improve their collection of children's books, is no longer making grants in Wisconsin.  This is due to the fact that the auditing practice they use is no longer accepted by the state of Wisconsin.

That leaves a big hole, but luckily, another foundation has stepped in to fill that hole.  The folks at Libri recommend looking into the Pilcrow Foundation, which is set up to help libraries obtain high quality children's books with a 1/3 matching grant (from a Friends group or fundraiser).
