“Inside was beautiful. Light and airy. It was so spacious and bright, and it smelled new! I remember picking out my stack of books and heading up to the desk to check them out.”
- K. Kenealy, on attending opening day of Forest Home Library
“An alive and creative solution to small scale public architecture.”
- Honor Award Judges, 1967
“Lived there. Just magical. It gave books context, dignity and gravitas."
- Denise K.
“Forest Home Library was my home away from home all through grade school and my freshman year in High School. I'll never forget that.”
- Juan R.
Forest Home Library won two design awards for its innovative use of steel and glass
"I remember feeling sad when I heard that the Forest Home branch was closing. That building was a big part of my youth."
We believe that a win-win-win scenario exists. There can be a future where Forest Home Library is preserved and Milwaukee’s Historic Mitchell Street neighborhood can gain a valuable resource in the form of a Children’s Wisconsin health clinic.
