Milwaukee Public Library Hours & Locations Close

Center Street

Center Street

Center Street Library, located at 2727 W. Fond du Lac Ave., was dedicated on June 10, 1989, replacing the previous site, a remodeled fire station at 2620 W. Center St.

In support of the Milwaukee Public Library's mission to provide materials and services to meet the present and future informational needs of all citizens of Milwaukee, Center Street Library became a Community Technology Center in 2003 with funds from a City of Milwaukee grant of Community Development Block Grant funds.

The technology center project greatly increases public access to computers, online resources and computer training at Center Street Library.

Center Street Library also continues to provide public access to library materials, services and programs for all ages.
