Featured Social Media + Web

Connect With the New Water Library Website

The Water Library has a modern new website with a wealth of new content for parents and teachers. Among the additions are lesson plans for teaching water and Great Lakes science to kids from ages three to nine, full descriptions of our new STEM kits and how to borrow them, and a map of where our librarians have given programs. The old favorites are here too—reading lists by topic, upcoming library events, book request forms and the “ask water” feature. The site is also an easy way to connect to our popular social media resources—Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the Aqualog blog.  

Start Savoring Wisconsin Fish

Eatwisconsinfish.org recently relaunched with newly simplified navigation, bright images and plenty of recipes. Arctic char with lemon-almond sauce, smoked fish spread or root vegetable hash with lake herring? There are also tips on preserving fish.

Those prep ideas constitute just one of the six areas of the website, which also includes information on why eating local fish is a healthy and delicious choice that also keeps dollars in local economies, and a detailed list of Wisconsin’s fish; producers, which introduces Wisconsin’s fishermen and fish farmers; resources, which offers a seasonal buying guide and a Wisconsin map indicating where to get the most fresh fish; events; and about the Eat Wisconsin Fish initiative.
