On Tues., Sept. 16, at 3:30 p.m. Barb and Ken Wardius, authors and photographers for the book Wisconsin lighthouses: A photographic and historical guide, will present a talk and slide show at the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library (Whitewater’s public library at 431 W. Center St.). UWW students and staff may borrow copies of their book from other UW campus libraries by using the free Universal Borrowing service, which gets requested materials here in 2-5 weekdays.
