This month marks the one year anniversary of the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center.  A lot has been accomplished in the first year, and the WLHC Steering Committee has an active agenda for the second year of the WLHC.  We are appreciative of the support of the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation Board and staff.  The WLHC website has a good start. We are grateful to the Outagamie Waupaca Library System for hosting the website, and for the assistance of Beth Carpenter in designing the site. Ten individuals were inducted into the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame in 2008 and plans are underway for more inductees in 2009.  The Wisconsin Library Memorabilia exhibit is now being sponsored by the WLHC.  It was on display at four libraries in the last year, and it will be on display at the Milwaukee Public Library in April. The WLHC Steering Committee hopes to explore the possibility of establishing a Wisconsin library oral history project in 2009. The Steering Committee is appreciatiave of the financial support of the Founding Contributors of the WLHC.  By the way, you still have a once in a lifetime opportunity to become a Founding Contributor.  WLHC Steering Committee members are listed here.
