What's News

NFLS Libraries' Beanstack Sites

The NFLS Beanstack page is now live! As communicated to library directors and Beanstack site admins earlier this week, this page is for patrons of the NFLS member libraries that don't have their own Beanstack sites at this time (Farnsworth, Florence, Gillett, Lena, Oconto Falls, Oneida & Suring).
  • The #BooksLikeUs #WinterRead2021 winter reading challenge will be active for the month of January (patrons can sign up ahead of time if they wish).
  • The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge has no start/end date, as it is ongoing.
Patrons will be awarded virtual badges when they reach reading milestones.

WPLC Library Staff Survey Due January 8

Please see the following request from the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium:

Attention Wisconsin Library Staff: We need your input!

Do you assist your patrons with Libby, the OverDrive app and Wisconsin's Digital Library?

If so, the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC) seeks your valued feedback on the collection of materials in Wisconsin's Digital Library. Your input, drawing from your knowledge of patrons, will help guide us as we continue to grow and develop the collection of ebooks, audiobooks, and other digital materials so it is most relevant to Wisconsin library patrons.

Please take the short survey here to help guide us:

The survey will be open through January 8, 2021.

Thank you for taking the time to provide valuable feedback and guidance!

WiLS, Project Manager
Wisconsin Public Library Consortium
