UW-Madison Day at the State Fair (Aug 8)

July 18th, 2012

Save the date! Come celebrate UW-Madison’s history of service and outreach by visiting its Wisconsin State Fair event, August 8. Located on the fair ground’s Central Mall, the “UW-Madison Day” will feature staff and alumni demonstrating their expertise and inviting fairgoers to “jump around” and experience all that the university has to offer–be that to taste some Babcock Ice Cream or to witness the Wonders of Physics.

Be sure to look for your Steenbock librarians and their campus library colleagues! We will be on hand to distribute some library-themed fun and to answer your questions about how you may visit and access library resources.

The State Fair event will also be an opportunity to donate school supplies to Milwaukee-area students. By bringing a new school supply to the Fair admissions gate, you will receive a voucher toward $5 off a $15 ticket sheet for SpinCity, the State Fair’s new amusement ride and game area (while supplies last).  See the list of necessary school supplies.

If you are unable to visit the State Fair during UW-Madison Day, please do consider making a school supply donation.  Donation boxes can be found at sites across campus–including Steenbock Library and Ag Hall.
