Three individuals have been selected by the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center (WLHC) Steering Committee to be inducted into the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame in 2018.  They are:  Lucy E. Smith Morris (1850-1935) who advocated for the development of public libraries in Wisconsin beginning in the late 19th century; Helen Adams a retired school library media specialist who advocated for school library media service at the state and national levels for more than 50 years; and Robert (Bob) Bocher, retired Department of Public Instruction Library Technology Consultant, who promoted  the use of technology to improve library service to the public, emerging as a state and national leader in this field. Their formal induction will take place at the WLA Annual Conference in La Crosse, WI on October 25. They will join 60 other individuals who have been previously inducted into the Library Hall of Fame.  The Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame is a project of the WLHC, a program of the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation (WLAF).  Induction into the Hall of Fame is granted to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the improvement of library service in Wisconsin and/or nationally.
