The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), has recently developed and promoted several professional resources to support librarians as they explore the role of new media in libraries and with families. Wisconsin public librarians are highly encouraged to read and review the white paper.  A free webinar will take place on July 21--register now to secure your spot!
