The Delafield Public Library has a “sneak peek” at its new building today (Sept. 26, 2010), and opens for business in its new location tomorrow. The Wisconsin Library Heritage Center (WLHC) is sponsoring an exhibit of Wisconsin Library Memorabilia for its sneak peek that will continue through October. The WLHC also has an exhibit at the Middleton Public Library on Andrew Carnegie’s Wisconsin Library Legacy that continues through Sept. 30. Because of the overlap with the Middleton exhibit, the exhibit in Delafield focuses on non-Carnegie library buildings. There are a number of artifacts relating to the Milwaukee Public Library and the Wisconsin Historical Society Library. Carnegie wasn’t the only benefactor of public libraries in Wisconsin and the exhibit includes artifacts relating to libraries which received large gifts in Marinette, Beaver Dam, Kenosha, and others. I was very impressed with the display case at the Delafield Public Library, one of the best I’ve come across. Our exhibit only occupies half of the display case. Delafield has a nice overview of its history on its website.
