The Support Staff & Circulation Services section of the Wisconsin Library Association provides support and circulation staff with an organized voice within the Wisconsin library community. SSCS seeks to improve the status and effectiveness of library support and circulation staff by developing continuing education opportunities, sponsoring conferences and providing networking with colleagues statewide to share expertise, experience and knowledge. WLA SSCS members represent public, academic, school and special libraries performing a wide variety of roles and responsibilities. You are invited to become part of this informative actions process.


Join us May 1 for Prevention First: Book Protection/Repair Workshop facilitated by Kary Barth of Book Kare with Kary.

$55 for WLA Members/$75 for Nonmembers

Limited to 25 participants. Must have 25 registered participants by April 15 to hold the workshop. 

This event is now full.  Please call 608-245-3640 to be placed on a cancellation list. 

 This 3-hour workshop is designed to demonstrate quick and easy techniques for extending shelf life on general circulating materials. Prevention is the key, but we will address specific, common repairs: re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages. This event is sponsored by the WLA Support Staff & Circulation Service Section (SSCS) and the Technical Service Section (TSS).  

Each participant is asked to bring:

  • One paperback book, preferably new or new-like to demonstrate covering techniques;
  • A hardbound book with a book jacket to demonstrate application of book jacket covers;
  • A stapled book or magazine;
  • One hardbound book that needs repair and a "naked" hardbound book, i.e., a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket; and
  • A hardbound book with a book jacket.

Each participant will be provided with a sample pack of materials.
