Small libraries make up the majority of libraries in Wisconsin.

We may be small, but together we are BIG.

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.
