Bridges received this award as a result of last year’s massive system-restructuring project, which added the Jefferson County libraries to what was then the Waukesha County Federated Library System, creating an entirely new library system. This was the first instance of a single-county system transforming into a multi-county system in the state of Wisconsin.

Bridges Library System will receive the award on June 21st in Milwaukee. Congratulations and thanks are owed to everyone at Waukesha and Jefferson counties who worked with the system in making this project a success.
