About MPL

Welcome from Library Director Paula Kiely

We are so proud of the many Super Readers we saw in our libraries this summer! Reading over the summer gives your child the best chance for a successful school year.

Remember the library is your information hub this fall. Visit our Teacher in the Library for homework help. Explore new books and try new activities during our After School Kids' Club. Bring the whole family to Harvest Fest on September 27th. Introduce your little ones to the wonders of reading at our Preschool Story Times and Toddler Play Groups. 

Don’t forget everything your library offers online as well, including free music and magazine downloads and the CountyCat Mobile App for access to the library from anywhere.


MPL is an anchor institution that helps build healthy families and vibrant neighborhoods – the foundation of a strong Milwaukee.


Inspiration starts here – we help people read, learn, and connect.
