Milwaukee Public Library Hours & Locations


Lawyers for Libraries

Milwaukee Public Library is at the heart of our community and justice is at the heart of our democracy.

Lawyers for Libraries will provide integral support for the Library's mission to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our neighborhoods. The group is comprised of local attorneys representing Milwaukee’s top law firms who value the library's essential services and programs in the community.

Throughout the year, Lawyers for Libraries members are invited to special events, including a Lawyers for Libraries Rooftop Party, talks by noted authors and exclusive exhibition openings. As added benefits, member firms’ summer associates and non-resident employees are invited to attend a private tour of the historic Central Library and offered VIP library cards providing access to the entire online collection.

Thank you to all who joined us for an evening of socializing at Central Library to learn about the positive impact the Milwaukee Public Library is having on our community.

There is still time to become an Inaugural Lawyers for Libraries Charter Member! 
Join now through December 31, 2017 to be listed at the new Mitchell Street Branch opening in September, or at the new Mill Road Branch opening TBD.
