Budget stopping you from going to WLA? WISLR can help!

The Wisconsin Small Libraries Roundtable is once again offering scholarships for small library staff who are members of WISLR to attend WLA this fall. WISLR is offering a $300 scholarship to cover registration, lodging, meals and mileage or two $150 scholarships to cover registration, meals, mileage.Awards will be decided based on the applications received.

Applications must be sent via email to Karen Bernau AND a copy to Diana Skalitzky. The Deadline is August 3rd, 2009. Recipient(s) will be notified by August 17th, 2009WISLR goals remain the same; provide members with information and resources that will enable small libraries to better serve their communities; share ideas and disseminate information to staff and trustees; provide information to other organizations about the value of small libraries. These scholarships are vital to ensure that small library staff members get a chance to learn and share.

Is there a catch? Of course. Recipient must write an article for the WhistleStop newsletter that gives an overview of the value of attending the conference; you must attend the entire conference; and you need to attend the WISLR business meeting while at WLA. (day and time to be determined). Applications can be found on the WLA webpage. Any questions? please call Diana Skalitzky at 608-655-3123.
