Calling All Public Library Trustees!

This news warrants not one . . . not two . . . not three  . . . but a whole bevy of Bavarian Alphorn players!  For the second year in a row, our Wisconsin public library systems are working together to present a week of fabulous free training geared to public library trustees, friends, and boards.  And you don't have to travel to the training - it's all available from your computer or laptop.
