Milwaukee... Who Knew?

The City of Summertime Festivals

Milwaukee display window

It's summer!   And while some people head south for vacations this time of year, many have found a surprising destination: Milwaukee.  Milwaukee hosts festivals all summer, including the world's largest music festival, Summerfest. 

There's a Polish Fest, a German Fest, an Italian Fest... you name it.  Milwaukee is too often overshadowed by its giant neighbor to the south, Chicago, so we thought it was time to give Milwaukee some attention.  Come by the library to see our display on this fascinating place through July and August.  Take a look at a video preview of the display.
