Held on June 3, 2014 at the Goodman Community Center:
When you think of library collections, what comes to mind? Books, DVDs, magazines & journals (print & online), and audiobooks probably top the list. What about cake pans? Seeds? 5000+ cookbooks or over 25,000+ maps? Probably not quite what you imagine when you visit the library, yet these are just a sampling of the diverse collections in today’s libraries.
As we celebrate our collections, we’ll hear about four unique collections from three area libraries. Featured speakers include Susan Santner, Director of the Oregon Public Library; Susan Krueger, Map Librarian for the Wisconsin Historical Society; and Karen Dunn, Information Services Librarian at Steenbock Memorial Library on the UW Madison campus.

Thank you to Susan Santner, Oregon Public Library; Susan Krueger, Map Librarian at Wisconsin Historical Society; and Karen Dunn, Steenbock Memorial Library for sharing their collections with us.
