Tippecanoe Library, located at 3912 S. Howell Ave., was built in 1969.
The library began in storefront-rented quarters at 2835 S. Howell Avenue
in 1931. In 1960 the library moved into a building on the corner of
Howell and Howard Avenues which was formerly the Town of Lake Hall and
Fire Department. After the Town of Lake consolidated with the City of
Milwaukee, the building housed the library and a city fire station until
Tippecanoe moved to its new home in 1969.
The library features a Guido Brink sculpture: a suspended three-color
metal sculpture inspired by the Native-American Indian name of the library.
Brink used Tippecanoe as his springboard, basing his sculpture on
American Indian mythology and the spirit of the Manitou. Tippecanoe
Library maintains a Job and Career Center and provides access to on-line
literature resources including the New York Times Bestseller List.
Staff lead introductory computer demonstrations and develop special
programs for children and teens.
