Everything You Want to Know About Book Challenges...and a Bit You Probably Don't

Presenter: Tasslyn Magnusson

Join your fellow Wisconsin library trustees and catch up on the news in book reconsideration policies, challenges, and weathering this unprecedented time for libraries across the country. Webinar participants will review some of the latest information and trends on book challenges and attacks on libraries and librarians and, most importantly strategies for preparing for and managing if (when) these challenges come to your library.


Wisconsin Library Law

Presenter: Kris Turner

Reading and understanding laws and regulations can be daunting, even more so when you are a trustee or on a library board. This session will focus on demystifying the law and focus on specific statutes and cases that affect Wisconsin libraries as well as a discussion of how to best answer legal questions when they inevitably arise. Topics covered include open meeting laws, statutory delegation of library board authority, basics of legal research, and more. When the session has concluded, you will be able to better locate and answer legal questions that you may face as a library board member and also know what resources are available to you to get these difficult and stressful questions answered.

To help Kris target his presentation, we created a short survey to gather input on Wisconsin library legal topics of interest to you. Thank you!
