Here at the South Milwaukee Library, we are here to serve you! We offer a diverse collection of materials from movies to books to magazines. We even recently started a board game collection! Beyond our library, your card gives you access to every other Milwaukee County public library & their materials!

You can place holds on items from other libraries & have them delivered to the South Milwaukee Library to pick up. Holds can be placed via CountyCat, by either calling the library or stopping in to speak with one of our staff members!

Have something you’d like to see in our collection? Suggestions on what you want to see out of your local library? Let us know! Material suggestions can be filed here & program suggestions can be made here.
