Milwaukee Public Library building demolished starting in July 2013, replaced by The Standard at East Library. The building was completed in 1968, and had reached functional obsolescence. As the neighborhood density increased, it became feasible for the library to be replaced by a new facility built by a private developer with a private, tax-paying use above (apartments). This was the second library to be replaced in such fashion, the first being the Villard Square Library.

A temporary library opened at 2430 N. Murray Ave. during the demolition/construction phase in early July 2013. An “I Closed the East Library” event occurred on June 22nd, 2013 with attendees being given an “I Closed the East Library” magnet.
