Friends Membership Makes a Great Gift!

Not sure what to give the person who has everything? Give the gift of a Friends membership! They will value your appreciation of their interests, and you will be supporting the Milwaukee Public Library at the same time. You can give a Friends membership at any level.

Give the Gift of Membership
Looking for the perfect gift? A Friends of MPL membership is an impactful gift that keeps on giving! By purchasing a gift membership you will give your friends and loved ones access to a treasured destination with endless information, resources and opportunity through the library.

We will send the gift recipient a Friends membership card with a personal message in a special greeting card. As a further “welcome” to this group of committed library lovers, they will receive exclusive Friends membership benefits, like a subscription to The Reader—the Milwaukee Public Library newsletter by mail; as well as first entrance to Friends book sales, author lectures and other literary events.

MPL Friends tote bags ($2 and $10) are also available for purchase to carry loads of books, movies and music materials on future visits to the library!

Support from Friends memberships helps further enhance the collections of the Milwaukee Public Library.
