We invite you to explore. A lot of information and entertainment await you at Milwaukee Public Library. With millions of items in the library’s collection – books, music, movies and much more – the opportunities are endless.

Lucky Day Books

Series books by popular authors, New York Times bestsellers, titles on a current topical issue, anniversary, or personality generate large queues of hold requests as soon as they hit the shelves. But we designate a number of these titles in high-demand as “Lucky Day” items. In other words, readers can’t place a hold on a select number of the copies available. Instead, customers who come into the library may find these gems on the shelf - ready for checkout - just because they came to the library in person that day.
