Wisconsin Small Libraries

Small libraries make up the majority of libraries in Wisconsin.

We may be small, but together we are BIG.

Find us on Facebook! Click the button below to "like" WISL, connect to other small librarians and get trivia, news and ideas relevant to small libraries.


WISL's purpose is to promote the common interests, activities, administration and services of all small libraries. WISL defines a small library as any public or non-public library staffed with 4 FTEs or less and serving a population less than 6,000, but we are happy to have any WLA member join our group. We learn best from each other.

Board Meeting Notes:  We had a brief meeting during WAPL.  WISL is looking for a board position candidate for 2015.  We will have an open seat for 1st year director. This position serves on the scholarship committee and helps other board positions as needed. 

Conference Notes: We are looking forward to the WLA conference in the Dells!  Our programs are set!  Our first ever social event is being planned.  "Games Librarians Play" a mixer with games.  We are looking for sponsors who are willing to donate some door prizes.  Contact Diana Skalitzky at dianas@scls.lib.wi.us
