"Both Brewers Community Foundation and Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, with generous support of the Milwaukee Public Library Foundation, have enabled literacy programs throughout Milwaukee. "
The award celebration will include remarks by Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee Public Library Director Paula Kiely, Milwaukee Public Library Foundation board chair Arthur Harrington and the honorees, as well as "A Taste of Central Library," an elegant dinner reception featuring a menu of literary-inspired delicacies in a beautiful Neo-Renaissance setting and surrounded by millions of books and historic collections.
