Milwaukee PL Branch Gets a Reprieve

By LJ Staff

Though the Milwaukee Public Library Board voted to close the Villard Avenue branch on October 1, LJ‘s initial report got it wrong: the Common Council September 23 approved $35,000 to hire back retired library staff to keep the library open until at least December 20. (Seven retirees stepped forward.) Villard Avenue and five other branches are closed on Fridays through the end of the year. The budget for the library will be decided in late November.
