Spooner Community Powered Project
What is Community Powered?
Community Powered is an initiative of Wisconsin Humanities that harnesses the stories, histories, and strengths of communities to build community resilience.
Over 2022-2023, Community Powered has partnered with the Spooner Memorial Library and libraries or cultural organizations in three other Wisconsin communities: Appleton, Racine, and Forest County Potawatomi.
Community Powered has hired four recent humanities college graduates with roots in each community to return home and help the communities work toward a local project that meets each community’s needs.
Together, Emily Riewestahl (our Project Coordinator), Spooner Memorial Library, and other organizations and citizens in Spooner will work together to develop locally meaningful projects.
