Did Marlene get fired yet? She’s so rude to so many patrons I started going to the east branch to avoid her uncomfortable looks and snarky attitude.

Clean facility.

Chris Cogbill

Alison Marie

I love this location. The building itself is elegant and charming, and the children's area is expansive and will keep your kiddos occupied for hours! I love the monthly family events and the used book store.

Dan Smith

The library is only open till 6pm, not 6:30pm on all weekdays. Don't be fooled by the inaccurate google time display. Make sure to double check it on the library's website!

Edward Sawyer

Pretty quiet, staff is not that friendly. Other than that, good library

The biggest Milwaukee Public Library. It's spacious and beautiful. I even had my wedding photos taken here. They look like I'm in a palace.

The best. The kids call it the castle library. The folk/fairy tale section is amazing.

Tremendous facility that is an absolute beauty to behold. It's unfortunate placement in a bit of rundown area can be overlooked as you feel in a different world inside. Really good selection of books and other items. Librarians have been helpful with membership, checking out things, and getting pointed in my searches for literature.

Patrick Schwartz

I love it my favorite place to be and work

Maryam Alkhalifah

This is one of my favorite public libraries in Milwaukee. The building is large and has several sections. The children's section is adorable. They have blocks for kids, a smal tower that kids can play inside, puppets that can be borrowed as well, and lots of books in a variety of different languages including Arabic children's book. Staff are friendly and very helpful. In the summer, they have a reading program for both children and adults. My child and little brother loved the reading program/ challenge and felt competent due to very encouraging words they received from staff and also the prizes they got.

Dome tour is super cool!

Love this library

Sam Fike

Beautiful old building, lobby on the south entrance has nice floor mosaics. The genealogy collection on the 2nd floor is a great resource to research family history. 1000s of books, wide selection of CDs and DVDs. There is a used book store with great deals. A must visit for tourists and if you are a local and do not have a library card you NEED to rectify this and seize the priceless resource.

Terrence Rucker

Callie Mangan

Beautiful building, huge selection.

Tha architecture alone is worth the trip, not to mention this is a 1st class library (system).

Mr Starbox

Brenda Fay

This downtown library has a great collection of books, DVDs, historical materials, music (CDs and sheet/bound) and a really nice children's area. Staff is usually really friendly and willing to help. The second floor Art and Music area is a great place to plug in a laptop with free wireless and a great view looking west towards Marquette University. I just wish they were open later during the week!

Leigh Wash

Loved this place since I was a child. Unfortunately the transient population is in full force here. But I don't blame that on the Library...

Jamie Gray

I lovw how the livrary library looks when I first come in I lobe looking up. Then the children's area is fun for my daughter playing on the lego table, the trains and climbing up the lighthouse. Thwy have differnt thi gs going on there with tge children. I love it.

Missy Littlewing

Timothy Rothhaar

Very large library with a great selection of CDs, DVDs, and books, especially graphic novels. Some upstairs rooms are modern, yet have a certain classy vibe. The largest upper room looks out onto the city. Great natural light as are the upgraded self-checkout kiosks. Friendly staff, and the small bookstore always has a good selection.

Naytun Win

Antonio Grubbs

It would be a lot better if so many bums didn't hang out over here. One was staring at me through the crack of the door while I was using the bathroom and started cussing at me for no reason.

Nicholas Wilkens

Quantera Lawson

I love coming to this library for the books and information I need, everyone is super friendly, helpful and there are a alot of secruity. Its also clean and super organized. But the homeless people ruin everything by standing around outside begging or being loud or sleeping at the computers.

Sarah Streicher

Incredibly helpful staff. The people in the Maritime area on the second floor are very knowledgeable and helpful.

Matthew Scholtes

Milwaukee has an outstanding public library system. One of the great things about this city.

Teddy Bear of Comedy

I'm biased towards this library because it has been my main library since childhood. Staff have been great and very helpful. The turn around time from ordering online to the drive through are quick. My ONLY SMALL knock is that they don't always have updated versions of certain things (like Rosetta Stone or other tutorials) but that's not their fault entirely. I'm happy see their updates and changes. I walk 2 miles for exercise to go here. Love it!

Elita Williams

Love the children's area!

The lobby is worth popping into if you're into architecture. Seems like a lovely place.
