August 2011. In celebration of its 100th anniversary, the Madison Civics Club has donated a collection of almost 150 books - all by Wisconsin women authors - to Madison Public Library.
For the next year, the book collection will travel as an exhibit to different Madison Public Library locations. The first stop for the display is the Goodman South Madison Library. Once their travels are finished, the books will be integrated into the greater Madison Public Library collection.
