Winter Open House on December 14th

Wisconsin State Law Library staff invite you to attend our annual winter open house on December 14th from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the David T. Prosser Jr. Library reading room. Every year we provide delicious appetizers and fun activities in a relaxed atmosphere that's perfect for socializing.

This year we've created a trivia challenge in honor of the Wisconsin Capitol Centennial celebrations. Fill out the questionnaire correctly and return it to the Library by December 14th at 4 p.m. for a chance to win one of three great prizes. As a bonus, everyone who comes into the Library on December 14th from 3 to 4:30 has a chance to enter their name in the drawing as well. Drawing winners will be announced at the end of our open house, and winners have up to one month to pick up their prize at the circulation desk.

We're collecting donations of hats, socks, gloves, and scarves for The Beacon through January 12th, 2018. All sizes are welcome. Drop off donations in the collection box located in the reading room of the David T. Prosser Jr. Library.

We look forward to seeing you!

Location: David T. Prosser Jr. Library rare book room

There were 1,093 reported data breaches last year - approximately 36 million records exposed.

A representative from the Wisconsin Bureau of Consumer Protection will present information on identity theft and data breach awareness. This one-hour program includes a look at recent data breaches and their common causes. The program will also explain the different types of identity theft, how to recognize it and how to prevent it - including information about Fraud Alerts and Security Freezes.
