• MORE online payments (ecommerce) not working There's a problem with our online payment system that cropped up late Sunday night (2-12). Payments have been declined: accounts are debited, then the charge is refunded (which may take awhile). The online payment button has been hidden as of Friday afternoon (2-17). I'll post an update when this is fixed. -Lori 02/14/2017 - 9:02am

Wisconsin Resources

Youth Services Section (YSS) of the Wisconsin Library Association provides several opportunities and resources:

Growing Wisconsin Readers is the state-wide initiative to help libraries reach out and help caregivers develop literacy skills with the children in their care.

Wisconsin Youth Services Showcase is a monthly update highlighting youth services programs and services, created by Tessa Michaelson Schmidt, the Youth and Special Services Coordinator for the Division for Libraries and Technology at the Department of Public Instruction.
