Book a trip to the State Law Library

National Library Week is April 10-14 and the State Law Library has several free classes and social events. Stop by our downtown Madison location for a presentation and Q&A on Ballotpedia, happening Tuesday at noon. And on Thursday, head to the library for socializing, coffee, and pie from 1-3.

Every visitor to the library during the week can play our guessing game to guess the number of pretzels in the display at the circulation desk. The closest two guesses win a prize!
