Step up for Wisconsin public libraries!

Bridges Library System is working with several other library systems in the state to start a postcard campaign supporting public libraries in Wisconsin. We need YOU to let your state legislators know how much Waukesha Public Library improved your life, and this community, in 2020. Stop at any WPL service desk and fill out a “Libraries Step Up” postcard to tell your elected representatives why you’re thankful for the library services offered in Waukesha. We’ll make sure the postcards get stamped and mailed, so just leave your completed card at any service desk. Our future funding is at risk because many legislators incorrectly believe that libraries have been closed throughout the pandemic. Please help us change this perception by letting your legislators know that WPL has been important to you and your family during this time. Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you at the Library!
