A New Martin Luther King Branch Library Will Be Opening in the Fall of 2024!

Martin Luther King Branch, located at 310 W. Locust St., opened in 1971 as the Locust Library. In 1973 the library was re-dedicated in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Milwaukee Public Library and project architect Moody Nolan are interested in hearing from you, the patrons of the Martin Luther King branch library about the interior design and features of the new King branch currently in development. The new branch will be larger, with better access to technology, and will feature flexible spaces similar to our other new branches in the system like at East, Mitchell, and Good Hope. Opening in 2023, the new building will be part of mixed-use facility built upon the current site. Please see the survey below to tell MPL what you would like to see and experience in the redeveloped branch.
