Are you looking for an opportunity to advocate for Wisconsin libraries at a statewide level?
Would you like to be part of the conversation to work toward building equity through Wisconsin libraries and their partner organizations?
Do you want to learn about innovations and projects being done at libraries across the state and hear about the creative solutions library staff are developing to address challenges they've faced over the past couple years?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then you should apply to be on COLAND, the Council of Library and Network Development.
Three openings are available beginning in July on COLAND and YOU could be appointed to fill one of them.Two are professional member openings (for people currently working in libraries) and the third is for a public member.The Council meets every other month at host libraries and school districts throughout the state. Through the pandemic, meetings have been held virtually, but are beginning to return to in-person meetings. Appointments to COLAND are for three years.
