Wisconsin Public Library Communications

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Have you ever wondered about communication options for Wisconsin public libraries, in addition to the Wisconsin Libraries for Everyone blog? The Public Library Development Team moderates six (6) email lists, each organized around library information and topics relevant to their targeted audiences, such as youth services and Wisconsin public library directors.  Some lists are closed discussion groups, and others are announcements only. To view the lists, targeted audiences, and list moderators, visit:

The Future of DPI Library Communications

The Wisconsin Division for Libraries and Technology (DLT) established WISPUBLIB in 1994 as a venue to discuss public library issues of interest to the state's public library community. That email list was replaced by DPI Google+ Communities in late 2015 until they were sunsetted by Google in April 2019. The Public Library Development Team (PLD) understands the value of open and trustworthy communications, and discussion of a replacement for the communities is in the works among Wisconsin library systems.
