“Great county system of libraries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2015

I love all of the media options at all of the locations across the city. If you have a card, you can log in and request a book from another library and pick it up at the one most convenient for you. Our entire family visits as often as possible.

“free day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2015

This is a huge place so plan on spending a good amount of time here. The part I liked the best were the streets of old Milwaukee. Seeing old candy shops and other stuff was an educational experience

“Cool place for children...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2015

Magnificent library with an entrance hall decorated with marble. Staircases are magnificent. The arrangement of the reading room intended for the children is remarkable. I cannot see how a child could not develop the taste of reading in such an environment.
