MILWAUKEE, WI (December 2, 2020) – Beginning tomorrow, Thursday, December 3rd, Milwaukee Public Library will shift operations at Central Library and all neighborhood branch libraries from in-person service to curbside materials pickup only. This is a result of the 7-day rolling average positive case rate for COVID-19 exceeding 15% in the City of Milwaukee.

To ensure the health and safety of our patrons and our staff, MPL will remain in a curbside service model until the positive case rate remains at or under 15% for at least 7 days. MPL will continue to offer robust virtual programming for all ages, and complete online resources including e-books and periodicals, homework help, and hundreds of databases and information sources.

Patrons can request materials online or by calling Ready Reference at 414-286-3011.

Patrons are encouraged to stay connected to mpl.org for updates and follow MPL on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) for the latest information on programming and other virtual offerings.
