After many months of hard work, the Inclusive Services Institute has created an Inclusive Services Assessment Tool for libraries!  The Inclusive Services Institute is a group of librarians, with representation from every system in our state and leadership from the Wisconsin Public Library Development Team, that was tasked with creating a tool for public libraries in Wisconsin to use to help assess where they are, and what they have left to do, in creating inclusive, welcoming, and accessible spaces and services for everyone.

The tool is ready to be looked at, tried out, and evaluated by libraries of all sizes.  I hope you will consider taking a look at it and providing some feedback to the ISI so that the tool can be made more useful to everyone!

To find it:  Go to this page and scroll down to the Inclusive Services section.  The tool is available as a Word document, and you can download it there!
