“This Building is a Work of Art, inside and out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Historic and Beautiful describe this building. The outside and inside are works of art. Come and enjoy the books, computers or the hundreds of things available and most at no cost or just come and look around. You will enjoy the building but make sure to put change in the meter or you will get a ticket. Parking is at a premium but there are many angle spaces on west side of building or pay a couple bucks right across the street.

“Magnificent System”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Using The Milwaukee Public Library has saved me a fortune by letting me borrow books instead of buying them. Their selection is great --- if you request your selections via the computer, you have access to the inventory at ALL of the libraries in Milwaukee County.

“Enormous!”

I have been to this library when Franklin Public Library didn't have the book I wanted. They seem to have a plentiful supply on hand!

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.

Simply one of the best libraries I've visited. Excellent layout and facilities - helpful staff and nice exhibitions. Also features a great used-book store.
