In the spirit of work at the national level through ALA’s State Ecosystem Initiative and the new Public Library & School Library Collaboration Toolkit done through collaborative efforts of AASL, YALSA, and ALSC, WEMTA, WLA, and DPI are working together to support and foster communications and collaborations among Wisconsin public and school librarians in order to better support the communities we serve.

Mark your calendars! This year’s WPLC Annual Membership Meeting will be held during WAPL on May 1, 2019 at 1:00 pm at the Central Wisconsin Convention & Expo Center in Rothschild.
