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 2017 Cornerstone Award Reception was held Thursday, November 2, 2017, at the 5100 Bar & Grill in McFarland. This year's award recipient was Larry J. Martin (left), the former executive director of the Wisconsin Library Association and someone instrumental in the creation of the SCLS Foundation. Martin currently serves as the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Bar Association.

Delta Properties and First Business Bank were the corporate sponsors for this year's Cornerstone Award Reception.

In 2017 we again presented three special library awards: the "Super Awesome Library Award", the "Program Wizard Award," and the "Giddy Up Partner Award." This year there was also a new fourth award to recognize an outstanding library volunteer.
