Participate in PLA's Public Library Services for Strong Communities survey

All U.S. public libraries are invited to complete the 2022 Public Libraries for Strong Communities Survey. The results will help the field better understand how public libraries are utilizing their unique programs, services, partnerships, and facilities in support of community needs.

Your participation can help ensure all types of libraries across the country are well-represented. In addition, participants are eligible for discounted Benchmark subscriptions and will be entered to win a free PLA 2024 Conference registration! Learn more here.

In partnership with the Job Center of Wisconsin, the Department of Workforce Development, and Wisconsin Workforce Development Boards, the DPI has developed multiple resources to assist in building partnerships with workforce development teams, and to enhance knowledge of workforce systems, and programs and services that support job seekers.

Along with the resources below, each library should assess and list on its website the specific services offered and any associated costs or required appointments. Then communicate this information to all staff. A Workforce Resources Inventory for Libraries is available to assist in this task.
