Stationery Saturday: Conservation
April 24-26 will be this month’s Pop-Up Days at the Golda Meir Library. Pop-Up Days are an opportunity for the community to stop in and check out some of the distinctive collections held in the Golda Meir Library. These departments, the UWM Archives & Area Research Center, Special Collections, and American Geographical Society Library always have walk-in hours and are open to the public but during our Pop-Up Exhibits there are materials out and available for people to explore.
In recognition of Earth Day, April 22, and Wisconsin’s Arbor Day, April 26, the UWM Archives and the American Geographical Society Library (AGSL) are teaming up to share items with the theme of Wisconsin nature conservation.
The Archives will have a variety of materials from the collections of citizens, organizations, and public officials who worked for nature conservancy in Wisconsin. The AGSL will be sharing maps depicting the resources of Wisconsin, including parks, soils, hydrography, geology, forestry, and more.
Be sure to make time to visit the UWM Archives on the 2nd floor and the American Geographical Society Library on the 3rd floor of the Golda Meir Libray April 24-26 to see some very unique materials!
