Check It Out! An After-Hours Exploration of Milwaukee's Central Library at Centennial Hall.

By Jennifer P on May 22, 2014 8:34 AM

The Milwaukee Central Library is giving FUEL the run of the place they’ve called home for the last 116 years.  This is an opportunity to explore one of Milwaukee's historic landmarks while getting an insider glimpse into a shared resource that you probably don’t use enough.

Did you know that the Central Library once shared a space with the Public Museum?  Did you know that the library staff raised a baby lion who lived onsite?  Did you know that you can access thousands of publications digitally using your library card?  Join us Wednesday, June 4, 2014 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM and learn even more.
