The Monroe Public Library is unique for many reasons, including that it is the only public library in Wisconsin with a public school system as its municipality, offering wonderful possibilities for partnerships with the community’s schools.
The library lives its mission every day—to provide a comfortable environment in which to gather and grow. It is dedicated to enriching our community and enhancing the lives of its people through excellent service and a responsive eye toward the future.
The library creates many benefits—education for our children, literacy, business productivity, personal and professional development. These are all direct boosts to the local economy and provide measurable benefits to Monroe’s economic vitality.
This led us to a strategic and carefully developed understanding that it is time to make renovations that allow us to provide additional spaces and services that have been requested by patrons. Twenty-first century libraries are versatile, dynamic organizations meeting the demands of a changing society. Gone is the one-dimensional, quiet building where you came to pick up a book and take it home to read.
