Friday FAQs for WI Youth Librarians

We are so lucky in WI!! Tessa Michaelson Schmidt, our statewide Youth and Inclusive Services Consultant, is asking for your input on concerns and questions you have during this difficult time. Each Friday she will share information, answers and shout-outs based on your input.

Here is her note and resources along with the link to the first recording for 4/10/20. Thank you Tessa!


Dear Library Staff Serving Youth,

Happy Friday! As promised, I offer you the very first recording of Friday FAQs for Youth Services. It’s not perfect (heads up around the 9:00 mark for a minor re-do), but I hope that it informative and helpful. The slides used in the recording are attached as a PDF. Also, the FAQ Friday form is open for your input on next week’s episode.
