Cornerstone Award

The Cornerstone Award is given annually to an individual or individuals who have had a significant and long-term impact on enhancing public libraries in South Central Wisconsin and represent the values and mission of the South Central Library System Foundation.

The 2018 Cornerstone Award Reception will be held Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018, at Babe's Grill & Bar, 5614 Schroeder Road in Madison. This year's award recipient is Alice Oakey (at left), who recently retired as the supervisor of Madison Public Library's Meadowridge Library. Bibliotheca, First Business Bank and Hausmann-Johnson Insurance are the corporate sponsors for the awards reception.

In 2018 we will again present four special library awards: the "Super Awesome Library Award," the "Program Wizard Award," the "Giddy Up Partner Award," and the "Outstanding Library Volunteer Award."
