300 attend WAPL conference in Wisconsin Dells

With dozens of programs and chances to reconnect with colleagues from around the state, the WAPL Conference hosted 300 registrants at Glacier Canyon Lodge in Wisconsin Dells. From answering patrons' legal questions to connecting kids with library resources, programs addressed new and perennial library service issues. Current events were the focus of Emily Sheketoff's Thursday luncheon program urging attendees to contact their Congressional representatives as library-related issues arise. In particular, she urged Wisconsin library supporters to share their opinions with Rep. David Obey who chairs the powerful House Appropriations Committee.
