Youth and Special Services

Tessa Michaelson Schmidt

I work within the Public Library Development Team (PLDT) to promote school-public library cooperation in support of literacy and learning. I consult with public librarians, public library administrators, public library system staff, library board members, school staff, and interested citizens. I develop and conduct statewide training activities; distribute information and facilitate the sharing of information on library services; and participate with other team members and library groups in the development of statewide plans for library service including the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Plan for Wisconsin. Please let me know how I can help you.
