What if the nearest library was across a busy highway, or took an hour-long public transit ride? What if the library came to you? Are you dreaming?
Nah, it’s the Dream Bus! Join us as we celebrate the newest of Dane County’s fleet of mobile libraries and talk about the history and impact of mobile library services. Our final episode of season 2, The Dream Bus, is now streaming.
This month we spoke with another rural library within the South Central Library System, McMillan Public Library! They are among 15 libraries (not including museums) that are being nationally recognized and celebrated this year for their outstanding service to their community.
Each year, the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) selects museums and libraries with the nation’s highest honor. So far, the only other public library in Wisconsin to make this list was Madison Public Library, in 2016.
This month, we feature the story of the Rock Springs Public Library, “The Library that Roars”. They overcame several bouts of extreme flooding and, although they lost their building, are still serving their community in unique ways, from a unique place.
