DANE COUNTY LIBRARIES IN THE 21ST CENTURY: NO LONGER "QUIET, PLEASE!"
Guests: Tom Linfield, Madison Community Foundation
Margie Navarre Saaf, Madison Public Library
Brian Simons, Verona Public Library
In this internet age, are libraries on the chopping block? I don't think so!!! - and neither will you after hearing this program. A new and energized environment is inhabiting the 28 libraries in Dane County, dramatically increasing the number of author visits, exciting exhibitions, workshops, lecture series, interactive presentations, and other lifelong learning opportunities for all ages. The goal is to promote lifelong learning, increase free programming and encourage multi-library partnerships.
On this program, Tom Linfield, Margie Navarre Saaf and Brian Simons talk about the Beyond the Page Campaign to support the expansive Humanities Programs in Dane County libraries. Their collective mission: to dream up, plan and promote new projects. Your input is welcome!
