Villard Square Library

Milwaukee Public Library

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

As part of their “Rethinking Libraries for the 21st Century” plan to review service models for the Milwaukee Public Library system, the new Villard Square branch is the first library built as part of a mixed-use building, with three floors of affordable housing above. Built as a separate condo at the ground floor, the new branch features expanded children’s and teen areas, greatly expanded technology with RFID and autosort, laptops, a meeting room that converts to additional browsing and seating when not used for programming, and a central hearth to draw the community together.
