Even links with Marquette's Graduate Law Library, when necessary!! They will bend over backwards to track down any book in their system, no matter how obscure or infrequently-read it is!

This is one of the iconic old public buildings that still has the cool stuff. THe lobby has been redone to the original splendor- mosaic tile floor, fake marble columns, high ceiling, etc. Even the stacks are fun to walk around in.

Nice Architectural Detail inside and out. Nice place to go to relax a little bit. The staff seem friendly that I spoke with. If walking there from downtown areas or the University the neighborhood is OK. I would still be aware of your surroundings. Not sure how it would be at night time in that location. If it part of Milwaukee's Architectural tour company. It is a must see.

Toured the Library with Doors Open Milwaukee. The lobby and dome area were beautiful maintained and architecturally magnificent. We toured the attic above the dome, the old 4th floor offices but missed the roof top garden.

Free internet, and employees that are willing to help. I especially like the downtown library. A lot of homeless, but I don't mind it. hey never bothered me. Great kids section as well!
