Located in downtown Milwaukee on Wisconsin Ave., parking is easy, the access from either side of the building is easy. They offer a book store, cafe and helpful people.

“free computer access”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The computer access is free, but non-residents can't use them unless accompanied by a resident with a library card. The lenghth of time for use is very short.
