Librarians in the Winding Rivers Library System find ways to share. We make sure items are available for Library Users thru the shared catalog. We share ideas to make library spaces more inviting. And if we have a surplus, we sometimes offer items freely to other libraries.

Hillsboro Public Library received multiple copies of DVDs from their local Blue Box Owner, and shared with a number of WRLS libraries recently.

Just in at Alma Public Library:
DVD + Blu-ray – Doctor Strange
DVD – Girl on the Train
DVD – Intern
DVD – Mother’s Day
DVD – My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
DVD + Blu-ray – Nocturnal Animals
DVD – Now You see Me

Thank you Hillsboro Public Library!

Alma Public Library is creating a collection of Kits for Kids that will help daycare providers and other caregivers have fun and educational learning resources at hand!

Public libraries are very involved in creating book kits for children and adults. Many school and public libraries purchase multiple copies of a title and circulate them as a Book Club kit. The Department of Public Instruction’s Resources for Libraries & Lifelong Learning program maintains a list of kits for adults that can be borrowed through interlibrary loan. There are currently 1791 titles on the list!  Book Club Kits

 

Badgerlink – Catch the Buzzzzz!

The Library + Badgerlink can help you find the facts. 

Sometimes a topic generates a lot of buzz, and you wonder where you can go to get more information. The WI Dept of Public Instruction makes available an online resource called, BadgerLink. Available to all Wisconsin residents, it’s a tool that many people aren’t familiar with, and a worthwhile source of hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles!

Visit the Library if you have a need-to-know. We’ll help you use BadgerLink to find out more about health-related topics, the newest business craze, or even the latest clickbait.

{“From a historical perspective, the techniques employed by clickbait authors can be considered derivative of yellow journalism, which presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines that include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism.” – from Wikipedia}
