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).

Blogging Class Scholarships Available

Learning new things is exciting, and it is even more exciting when you know those things will help you provide better service to the folks in your community.  And when you can get to do it for free?  Even better!  Check out the following opportunity:

As part of the Coding Initiative in Wisconsin Public Libraries, the Public Library Development Team at the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is proud to offer scholarships for twenty library staff to participate in the online professional development course, “Coding Together, Learning Together” offered by the University of Wisconsin-Madison iSchool Continuing Education Services.

The course runs from March 27 through April 21, 2017. There is no cost to scholarship recipients to take part in the course; the $125 course fee will be paid directly by DPI. Applicants must apply online by Friday, February 17, 2017. Twenty applicants will be selected, preferably representing all 16 regional library systems. This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
