WiLS’ mission is to help its members turn ideas into action. WiLS Ideas to Action Fund provides support for innovative or collaborative projects to help members reach their goals and have a positive impact on Wisconsin libraries. If you and your project meet its eligibility and requirements, you can apply for up to $5,000.
WiLSWorld, on July 23rd and 24th at the Pyle Center in Madison, is going to be jam-packed with great learning and sharing opportunities. Here are just a few exciting highlights:
Here are some upcoming WiLS Events for April, May, and June - including Peer Council and the 2019 Ideas to Action Fund! Learn more about WiLS at https://www.wils.org/about-wils/.
WHAT: The Games in Libraries Conference is open to all library staff from public, academic, or special libraries. It encompasses all types of games - board, card, video, etc.
WHEN: May 31, 2019
WHERE: UW-Eau Claire's McIntyre Library
WHY: Whether your library uses games currently or not, the Games in Libraries Conference is for you!
COST: FREE! Funding provided by the Ideas to Action grant from WiLS.
As many things in our society become "gamifed" (e.g., Snapchat streaks), we need to learn and understand the various ways in which games of all types can be used as educational tools. This conference is one in which we hope to show, share, and learn from peers about how they use games in libraries, why adding games to a collection might be useful, and how they can promote their use with their users.
