eBook Club @East Library

| No TrackBacks


 Did you know that your Milwaukee Public Library card gives you access to thousands of free eBooks, electronic audiobooks, and digital magazines? Well it does, and it's awesome! If you'd like some assistance navigating these amazing resources, please visit your local library!

Beginning in December, East Library will have a staff member available every Wednesday evening to assist you in setting up your eReading device to utilize the library's collection. So bring in your Kindle, Nook, iPhone (etc!), and we'll have you borrowing eBooks in no time!

 For a complete list of dates, or to set up a reminder, see the library events calendar.

Scan, Save, and Share @Your MPL Branch!

| No TrackBacks

Do you need a quick, easy, and free way to sign and send a document?  Instead of trying to locate a fax machine, why not stop in at your local MPL branch and try one of our new Scan Stations? We recently received our station at East Library, check out the cool set-up:

With a few touches of the screen you can scan up to 40 pages per minute and send them to your flash drive, Google documents folder, or email address, all for free.

The station also makes beautiful full color scans, perfect for photos or sharing your child's latest art project with family far and wide.

Milwaukeeans, help inspire artist Santiago Cucullu's art installation at the New East Library.  The artist asks interested individuals to submit a short description of a significant life event that occurred near an MPL location, including the notable geographical landmarks where the event occurred.  You can share your unique Milwaukee story (500 words or less) and photos on MPL's Facebook event page or drop your story and photos off in person at Temporary East Library.  If you haven't visited before, the Temporary Library faces Greenwich Avenue and is located right next door to Stone Fox Salon. Submissions may also be sent via mail to us at 2430 N Murray Ave, Attention: Public Art or email at  The submission deadline is Sunday, November 24th.

If you missed East Library's closing party last summer, or if you just like to reminisce, come on over to our temporary location and check out the scrapbook created for us by Laura Gorzek of Artists Working in Education (AWE). It features postcards to the library made by our patrons! They're pretty adorable!
