It’s National Library Week. I couldn’t imagine a better time to improve the services we provide to our users. At MPL, we connect people with information and knowledge. 2.2 million people walk through our doors annually and more than 1,000,000 connect with us online. Each time you visit us your experience matters, and is as important to us the first time as it is the 43rd time. That’s why we’ve rolled out a new website - to make access to information and services easier for you. You’ll find in-demand services and upcoming events accessible from our home page. You’ll get librarian reading and research tool recommendations with each visit, and you can check out books and conduct research from anywhere with your library card.
While you’re here, check out a few of my favorite features – free music and magazine downloads - and get the CountyCat Mobile App for access to the library from anywhere.
Thank you for making the library a part of your life. We’ll see you again soon!
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.
