Event Details

Come to the reception by the Mead Public Library Foundation to meet Laura Sauser and Nyama Reed, presenters of Wisconsin Libraries: Past, Present & Future, a program of the Wisconsin Academy Of Sciences, Arts and Letters.

Celebrate the 125th anniversary of Mead library by joining us for this reception, and the presentation that follows at 7:00 p.m.: examining the history of Wisconsin’s libraries and the vital role libraries play in the state today during this talk led by Laura Sauser and Nyama Reed of the Wisconsin Library Association.  Learn about the early advocates instrumental in the development of Wisconsin libraries and the vital role libraries play today––in college campuses, corporations, rural villages, urban areas, and more––and examine the changing face of libraries heading into the future.

The talk will be held at 7 p.m. and includes a reception from 6-7 p.m. in The Loft, with the presentation to follow in the Rocca Room. Presented in partnership with the Mead Public Library Foundation and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.
