The following information was taken directly from a WI Libraries for Everyone blog post.
As Mark mentioned in yesterday’s Wisconsin Libraries for Everyone blog post, beginning May 23, 2021, the COVID-era Unemployment Insurance (UI) work search waiver disappeared. Wisconsinites filing for unemployment insurance benefits (with certain exceptions) must now complete and document four work search activities per week.
Assisting residents with filing Unemployment Insurance (UI) claims and with job seeking are among the top priorities as libraries are able to resume service delivery within their communities. The Libraries Activating Workforce Development Skills (LAWDS) project is well-situated to enhance the ability of public library staff to meet those needs. The Department of Public Instruction is working closely with partners from the Wisconsin Library Association, Wisconsin’s public libraries and systems, the Department of Workforce Development and the Wisconsin Workforce Development Boards to re-envision the activities of the grant to align them with current needs.
A number of partner resources and previously recorded webinars might be the refresher you need to help you help UI claimants:
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) awarded Brown County Library a grant of $1,000 as part of the new East Asia in Wisconsin Library Program.
CEAS, a federally funded National Resource Center for the study of East Asia, created the program to encourage Wisconsin libraries to augment their collections with East Asia- related materials. This program is part of the center’s focus on promoting understanding of East Asian histories and cultures, and aligns with the Wisconsin Idea mission of service to Wisconsin citizens beyond the boundaries of the classroom. CEAS partnered with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, the Wisconsin Library Association, and the Cooperative Children’s Book Center to plan and promote the new program, which launched in August, 2020.
