The new Washington Park Library replaced Finney Library (4243 W. North Ave.) which was built in 1953. Washington Park Library officially opened Saturday, April 12, 2003. The new library, at 20,000-square-feet, is the City of Milwaukee's largest neighborhood library. Named for the park it borders, the library offers improved service to its customers, including additional computers for public use and a computer lab; excellent community meeting space (meeting rooms); a larger area for children and young adults; an expanded collection of books, videos, CDs and DVDs;
and allows the library to expand its outstanding adult tutoring program.

The bronze statue of Baron Frederick von Steuben which stands outside the library was commissioned in 1921 by the Steuben Society to commemorate the German hero of the American Revolutionary War. Over the years the statue, sculpted by Swiss-born artist J. Otto Schweizer, has become a Washington Park landmark.

Come and see the Milwaukee Public Library System's largest neighborhood library. We look forward to seeing you soon!
