Share Your WPLC Story!

The WPLC Board is looking for stories on how Wisconsin’s Digital Library has impacted your library OR your patrons. This story can be from what a patron has told you, from what you have seen or experienced in the library or can be from your personal experiences with the WPLC.
Share your story here:  https://forms.gle/5RdnYpgdBcVkQQQD8
These stories do not need to be long (as seen in an example story on the form) and you can submit more than one if you would like. Please share with other staff, so they can tell their stories as well. Any questions, please ask Katelyn Noack.

Pollinator Month Events from Milwaukee Public Library

I highlighted this info in last week’s Digest. There’s now a webpage with all the info, and they’ll be updating it with videos on May 15. They’ve sent along supplies lists for each activity, which I’ve attached to the email version of this blog post. If you have any questions, please contact Diana Paul at diana@melindamyers.com.
