The Betty Brinn Children's Room

The children's library at the Milwaukee Public Library is phenomenal!When you walk in, you are greeted by flashing colorful lights , animals on the carpet, and an atmosphere of fun. This was the first library to have a children's library separate from the rest of the library. The children have their own computers (30), their own shelving using the Dewy system, special collections including foreign language and award winning books. There is an activity room that they hold puppet shows and after school programs in, and many other group activities. The room is full of animals, puppets, books, and games, and there is a GIANT lighthouse that children can play in.

The children's library also features a window of Hans Christian Anderson that was designed by Marie Herndl in 1896.
MPL has a site just for the kids!
