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.

A 2009 poll conducted for the American Library Association found that 96% respondents agreed that public libraries play an important role in giving everyone a chance to succeed because it provides free access to materials and resources.
