COVID and our Community

Whitefish Bay Public Library (Updated 5/20)

Whitefish Bay Public Library is working on plans to reopen to the public, utilizing the Suburban Milwaukee County Safe Opening Capacity Guidance chart that was released by the local health departments, plus the CDC and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s safe business practices and physical distancing and protective measures for staff and patrons.

We realize people are excited to get back in the library and we appreciate your patience as we work to make that happen safely. Given the complexity of the various guidelines, we are currently working out details in a thoughtful and judicious manner for a phased reopening in June.

We will continue curbside pickup of materials at this time, and we also encourage you to continue using our many digital offerings. Email questions to Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unusual times.
