Villard Square

The Milwaukee Public Library Villard Square Branch is a mixed-use development that includes a Milwaukee Public Library branch on the first floor, with 47 apartment homes on three stories above for families where grandparents are the primary caregivers for their grandchildren.

The library replaced an aging, energy-inefficient building located at 3310 W. Villard Ave. The Villard Square Branch covers 12,770 square feet, and includes more than 50 desktop and laptop computers for users, community meeting and study rooms, children’s and teen areas, and self-checkout stations.  An on-site parking lot for 32 cars is included.

"Nestled in the heart of the near northwest side of Milwaukee, Villard Square Branch serves a richly multicultural neighborhood by providing a wide variety of more than 45,000 books, videos, and other multimedia materials."

-- Rachel Collins, Library Branch Manager
