The Library Services Team at DPI believes that trustee education is a key component of public library and system success, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is close to rolling out a new statewide program to provide access to the United for Libraries suite of trustee trainings. 

The Learning Live webinars are the hot items right now, as they feature timely topics. These webinars have been added to the DPI professional learning calendar. Free attendance to the 3-day 2023 United for Libraries Virtual Conference from August 1-3 is included with this new program.

As part of the service rollout, Public Library Administration Consultant Shannon Schultz has created an email distribution list for all public library trustees in the state. Shannon will be sending and has sent an announcement to that list. 

A walk-through webinar will showcase some of the many resources and training included in our new statewide access to United for Libraries. Statewide access includes all library directors and staff, all library board members, all Friends of the Library groups, and all library foundations! This session will be recorded and available to those who cannot attend live.
