The Fierce Female Librarians Who Delivered Books on Horseback During the Great Depression

"One of the many public programs initiated by FDR’s New Deal was the Works Progress Administration, which funded the Pack Horse Library Initiative. The project hired fierce “book women” (and occasionally men) who were fearless, who loved reading, and who were highly proficient on horseback for the job."

Thousands of people had something to read because of these women.

Are you a believer? Step up with a program proposal for WAPL 2020! See more below...

Now is the time to look past impossibilities and obstacles and focus on possibilities…

We’re looking for library staff who believe in infinite possibilities! The Wisconsin Association of Public Libraries (WAPL) Annual Conference Programming Committee seeks program proposals for the next public library conference to be held April 29 – May 1, 2020 at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel & Conference Center in Oshkosh.

With a theme of Infinite Possibilities, the goal of this year’s conference is that attendees will leave believing that there are infinite possibilities when they are given guidance, encouragement and wisdom. Rather than focusing on impossibilities and weaknesses, we want this conference to be all about possibilities, strengths and strategies to make the most of our work as library staff. We want you to think big picture, but we also want to hear practical and effective strategies, ideas, and projects from your corner of the library world that at one time were only “possibilities.”

We encourage directors and staff of small libraries to step up and share how they have led their library by considering possibilities instead of obstacles. We encourage youth and adult services staff to step up and share stories of collaboration and techniques that have led to possibilities in their community. We encourage library directors, trustees, system and support staff, and managers to step up and share how they have turned impossible situations into possibilities despite budget issues, feeling unheard when advocating, building projects, times of uncertainty and more. We encourage topics such as technology, inclusivity, staffing, fundraising and outreach. We want to continue the important conversation about diversity in staffing, serving, programming, and cultivating connections. We encourage library staff and leaders of color to lead these conversations and other programs as well.

Proposals for presentations, panels, workshops and business meetings are welcome. Sessions will run either 45 or 60 minutes in length with a maximum of four presenters.

Please use the Program Proposal Form to submit a program.
Submission deadline is December 31, 2019.
Acceptance or rejection notifications will take place no later than February 14, 2020.

Please contact us with any questions. We're looking forward to an excellent conference!

Pass the Peas, Please: Wisconsin's Canning History - Recollection Wisconsin

Check out the great historical photos and hear Lakeside Packing Company employee Gordon Lund discuss the history of the company, including its use of POWs for labor during WWII, the migrant workforce, and OSHA regulations, in his 1976 oral history interview from the Manitowoc Public Library.

The story of commercial canning in Wisconsin turns out to be the story of the pea. The canning of beets, corn, cucumbers and other crops has been an important part of Wisconsin industry since the late 1800s. However, it was a native Pennsylvanian and his peas that started it all. The first commercia...

In Minnesota libraries, community is part of the collection

"Libraries have transformed quite a bit from what they were, even in the early 2000s. A lot of people thinks it's books and stuff. Really, to me, it's community and information.”

Libraries in Minnesota offer an ever-expanding catalog of resources and services. At the Rondo library in St. Paul there are story times in several different languages, a book, vinyl and DVD collection and reference librarians prepared to help with anything — really anything.
