Community Relationship Building

Building a relationship with K-12 librarians and teachers is essential. Sonja Ackerman (K-12) and Sue Abrahamson (Public) teamed up to show us how school and public librarians can work together for great results!

WVLS List Servs for Librarians Serving Youth

WVLS maintains a Public Library Youth Services list serv and a WVLS K-12 Library and Media Specialist list serv.

  • Both WVLS lists are two-way, meaning that subscribers can both reply to messages and initiate messages to colleagues.
  • Send an email to help@librarieswin.org  and request addition to either the Public Library Youth Services Email list or WVLS K-12 Library and Media Specialist list serv.

Statewide Youth Services Email Listserv

  • The Statewide Youth Services (YS) Email Listserv is run by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and coordinated by the State Youth Services Consultant.
  • The list is updated annually based on youth services staff listed on public library annual reports.
  • The YS list is one-way, meaning that you will receive occasional messages of statewide interest, but cannot reply or initiate statewide messages.
  • Send an email to tessa.schmidt@dpi.wi.gov to request addition to the list. The list is updated annual based on youth services staff listed on public library annual reports.
