Take time to investigate the WLHC online site for a fascinating look at Wisconsin's rich library heritage.

The WLHC, a program of the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation, was established to foster an understanding and appreciation of the history of libraries and librarianship in Wisconsin; to promote the preservation of library artifacts and archives; and to encourage research and publishing that will contribute to an understanding and appreciation of Wisconsin's library heritage.

Thanks go to the WLHC Steering Committee and its Chair, Larry T. Nix, for the creation and guidance of this exciting and ongoing historical preservation project. The opportunity still exists to become a "Founding Contributor" of the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center. Visit the WLHC website to learn how.

The Campaign for Wisconsin Libraries could be one of the most important things the library community has ever done. We live in a knowledge-based economy, where life-long learning is mandatory. Public, academic, special, and school libraries are essential institutions and should not be compromised. Yet these valuable institutions are in danger. We are seeing funding cuts, service and staffing cuts, aging collections, and deteriorating physical infrastructure as a growing challenge that must be addressed. A campaign for library advocacy throughout the state of Wisconsin is sorely needed. Please join our effort to give libraries this much needed voice.
