About the Library


The mission of the South Milwaukee Public Library is to enhance the quality of life in South Milwaukee in a welcoming and innovative environment that provides information and ideas for lifelong learning and literacy. The City of South Milwaukee has had a library since 1917. In 1967, the current library building was built to serve the needs of its community. The library is governed by a 7 member library board.

We are a member of the Milwaukee County Federated Library System which is a consortium of 18 public library municipalities within Milwaukee County. Members of the system are able to share materials & resources with one another in an effort to expand library services to everyone in Milwaukee County. Stop by some time to see what we have to offer you!
