Are you interested in a new initiative to encourage Wisconsin library staff to meet 21st century needs with interactive, participatory tools? Do you want to be involved in a project that will develop your leadership and project management skills? If so, then consider being part of the 2015 ILEAD USA-Wisconsin program.
Anyone who is working in a Wisconsin library – a public, school, special, academic, or regional public library system – is eligible to participate. Each participant will apply with four other Wisconsin librarians to form a team of five ILEADers. Team members will participate in three mandatory in-person sessions over the course of nine months. The location for the three in-person sessions will be the Heidel House in Green Lake.
The online application and more details are available at: http://pld.dpi.wi.gov/pld_ileadusawi
Applicants will be asked for individual contact information in addition to details about their team project. The deadline for applications is November 21, 2014 with notification of selected teams taking place in mid-December.
The 2015 ILEAD USA program is made possible through the leadership of the Illinois State Library with major funding provided by a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
