Come to the Library's Community Room for this program. Anne Moser, librarian of the Wisconsin Water Library at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus will make a presentation on our Great Lakes and their current situation. Just 3% of the water on earth is freshwater and the Great Lakes have 20% of that supply. Two million people worldwide today face some sort of water-supply shortages and 5 million die from water-borne diseases. What are the specific stressors that face our Great Lakes today and what are we doing about it? Anne will introduce the current science and the issues facing our precious resource.
