Wisconsin Library Heritage Center
A highlight in the promotion of library history in 2008 was the establishment of the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center (WLHC). The WLHC was established as a program of the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation. A central component of the Center is its website which is a combination of static web pages and a blog. A major project for the Center in 2008 was the establishment of the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame. The WLHC also sponsors a Wisconsin Library Memorabilia exhibit. The concept of a library heritage center is something that could be replicated in any state or even at the national level.
