All Milwaukee Public Library locations to switch to contactless pickup due to COVID surge

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Beginning Thursday, Dec. 3, Milwaukee Public Library (MPL) will shift operations at the Central Library and all neighborhood branch locations from in-person service to curbside materials pickup only. This is due to a seven-day rolling average positive case rate for COVID-19 exceeding 15 percent in the city of Milwaukee. 

According to a news release from Milwaukee Public Library, the decision is to ensure the health and safety of patrons and staff. MPL will continue to offer curbside service until the positive case rate remains at or under 15 percent for at least seven days. 

Virtual programming for all ages, along with complete online resources, are still available.
