New Library Branches
Over the past few years, the library has collaborated with developers to build several new mixed-use library branches that are saving taxpayers millions of dollars. The new libraries have also been an economic and social boost to the neighborhoods and business districts as thousands of library visitors and new residents patronize local businesses.
Currently, Milwaukee Public Library is working on the development of the new Martin Luther King Library which is scheduled to break ground this spring. As a part of the process, MPL and the project architect will be hosting several community meetings and issuing public surveys to determine what features and resources are most important to the community. The new branch will be larger, with better access to technology, and will feature flexible spaces similar to our other new branches in the system like at East, Mitchell, and Good Hope. Many of the unique features at these new libraries, such as the community kitchen, makerspaces, public art, and fireplaces, have been sponsored by supporters of Milwaukee Public Library Foundation.
