New at MPL: Now @ MPL

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Here at the Milwaukee Public Library, we are pleased to announce that we are adding a new level of interactivity to the MPL Web site. This is the first post in our brand new blog "Now @ MPL..." We plan to bring you the newest undertakings and events at the library.

A blog allows us to let you know the latest things that are happening. It also lets you tell us what you thought of an event, or how you feel about an upcoming program. Blogs have been an effective tool for organizations to communicate with customers for a few years now, and we are excited to try it out for the first time ourselves!

So make sure you check back regularly. We will be updating the blog on a constant basis.
