Craft new partnerships with county humanists and humanities programs.The DCLS consortia will work closely with the Madison Community Foundation to undertake this multi-year campaign. Annual efforts funded by the $95,000 endowment yield will create new humanities programming at public libraries, large and small, rural and urban, across Dane County.
