What's News

Digitization Kits, Cricut Maker Machines & Ellison Die Kits Available for Libraries to Borrow


NFLS has updated our website to include a few additional offerings for our member libraries:

  • Digitization Kits: You can now submit an online form to request to borrow the Recollect Wisconsin Digitization Kits.
  • Cricut Maker Machines: We have purchased two Cricut Maker machines which are ready to be lent out. You can also submit an online form to request to borrow the machines.
  • Ellison Die Cutting Machine: We performed some maintenance to ensure the machine will cut properly. We also purchased several additional dies and die sets. An updated list of available dies can be found on the website.

Library Directors: Please share widely with additional staff that may be interested in using any of these items.

Service Animals: Your Obligations Under the ADA

This is a one-hour live webinar. Some of the issues covered include:
  • Which types of animals are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
  • What are the two questions you can legally ask? (Yes, there are only two!)
  • Can you legally exclude a service animal if it growls, poops, sets off someone's allergies, or scares someone with a phobia?
When: Thursday, March 11 at 1:00 PM Central time (Length: 1 Hour)
