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).

Celebrating 25 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

I was chatting with my friend Kathie Schneider yesterday about how the Americans with Disabilities Act is now 25 years old.  Kathie is a powerhouse advocate both for libraries and for people with disabilities.  She pointed out that libraries, with our mission to serve everyone in our communities, could use the 25 year anniversary of the ADA to celebrate our efforts to make our spaces, programs and collections accessible and inclusive.  And perhaps it could be an occasion to examine our spaces, programs and collections to see how we can make them even more accessible and inclusive for people with varying needs.
