MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Public Libraries will be continuing their contactless pickup through Jan. 19 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Central Library and all neighborhood branch libraries will only be offering curbside pickup, as well as robust virtual programming for all ages, and complete online resources including e-books and periodicals, homework help, and hundreds of databases and information sources.

Since visitors can't go into the library to browse around, you can check out the books and everything the library has to offer online here. You can also reserve books for pickup.

MPL also has an expansive list of COVID resources, including food, housing, and medical information, the library said in a press release Tuesday.
