Over 300 people came through the doors of the Mitchell Street Branch Library on December 1, 2017 for a free wrestling event with Mondo Lucha – Milwaukee’s very own show-stopping Mexican-style professional wrestling show.
Patrons of all ages left their indoor voices at home and the energy was high as wrestlers competed in multiple matches where good prevailed and the books were spared. When the matches were over, patrons were able to tour the new Mitchell Street Branch and all its features, including: a maker space complete with a recording studio, audio and video edit stations, and a community kitchen.
The event is part of MPL’s Library Loud Days series, which offers free, fun and LOUD events to showcase the library as so much more than a place to check out books, but a place to converse, connect, explore and learn.
