Ready Reference

Ready Reference at the MPL was done away with in 1981, but there were so many requests to restore it, that it was brought back in 1986. Today it has a collection of over 3000 materials. They receive approximately 200 calls a day. The majority of these calls come from elderly people, who just like to hear a voice on the other end of the phone.
All of the Milwaukee Public Library ready reference librarians have either three years of experience working in the library, or have a masters in library science.
Have any questions for the MPL librarians?

in an old city like Milwaukee, where the only jobs for people is in old ww1 factories ,that should have been torn down 30 years ago. please start sending people to Sioux falls, to Sioux falls, it is new , wells fargos headquarters, and there is no crime it is a city of 100,000 people and the bus system is new. black people can move there because it is a state that is mostly native americans that don't think they fit....the library is brand new and some of the coffee shops like dark skin peoples business. land can be acquired through the county recorders office in each is called tax deed land and they have lists of tourists who have bought land in south Dakota, and then went home and never paid the land taxes. so the county takes the land and records inexpensive land for sale to the public.a football field size piece of land, may only cost 75 dollars. stop porn motels on 27th street and get those ssi people to south Dakota, so they can have a life....Milwaukee is burned out and all it is doing is causing trouble, thanks, ken
