Be Part of WI's Remake Learning Days

Libraries in southern WI are invited to share already-planned virtual events for children and teens focusing on Arts, Makering, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology, Youth Voices and Professional Development as part of Badgerland's Remake Learning Days website portal. If you have events or take-home activities scheduled for April 22 to May 15, this extra boost can bring more fun to your teens and families.
