Greendale Public Library


MAY 23-25


The library will reopen using a phased-in approach with service limitations starting on a date to be determined the week of May 25th. In-person service hours will be the same as curbside service.

Curbside service will continue to be available by appointment.
Phone inquiries and pickup scheduling hours are:
12-6 Monday-Thursday,
12-5 Friday,
10-2 Saturday

Please call 423-2136 during these hours to request available Greendale library items and a pickup. The book drop is always open.


Call Ahead: 
  • Call the library during the curbside hours above, we'll find items for you to borrow from what's currently available in our collection. As of May 1 we're still unable to request library materials from other Milwaukee County libraries due to lack of regular delivery service.
  • We'll schedule a pickup appointment with you. Pickups are offered every 15 minutes throughout the curbside hours. Please note that this service is extremely popular. Recent pickup appointments have been scheduled out 3 days in advance.
  HINT - before calling do an Advanced Search in the library catalog and select Greendale in the "Location" drop-down menu. This will help you find things in our library more quickly.

 At the Library:
  • Park in the designated pickup parking space adjacent to the library entrance. Use your cell phone to call the special pickup phone number printed on the parking space sign. We'll bring your items out to you and place them on the pickup table. Walkers and bicyclists please follow the same procedure.
  • Be mindful of physical distance when exiting your car to retrieve them from the table.
  • If you need special acommodation to place the items in your vehicle, please note that at the time of your call. You may pop your trunk for staff, but we encourage you to exit your vehicle to close the door on your own.
  • If you don't have a cell phone, please let us know at the time of your original call to request library items. You may knock on the door to let us know you're here.
  • All pickup items are already checked out to you before your appointment.
Curbside Pickup in operation 2
  • Why by appointment? - appointments help us discourage congregating groups, and manage the flow of materials while the library is being operated by a very small on-site crew.
  • Curbside pickup elsewhere - Most other libraries in Milwaukee County also offer some form of curbside pickup service. If there are items you want from these libraries, check this MCFLS listing for updated information about other library hours and types of services available.
  • Due dates - all library materials currently checked out have had due dates automatically extended to June 1. You may return them at any time in our book drop, open 24-7.
