Meredith Wittmann named Regional Librarian

The Milwaukee Public Library (MPL) and Wisconsin Regional Library for the Blind
and Physically Handicapped (WRLBPH) announced today that Meredith Wittmann has been
named Regional Librarian. She will begin her new duties on January 5, 2009.

Wittmann, a native Milwaukeean who grew up in Cudahy, is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Library and Information Science. She came to MPL in June 2007 from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) library. Wittmann has been the outreach librarian for WRLBPH since March 2008.

Wittmann replaces Marsha Valance, who retires from WRLBPH and MPL after 19 years of service on December 30.

Under a contract with the State Department of Public Instruction, MPL administers the WRLBPH, which provides services statewide to those who are blind, visually impaired or physically challenged to hold a book. WRLBPH services are free and require a doctor’s certification.
