Franklin Public Library

Located at the intersection of West Loomis Road and West Drexel Avenue in Franklin, Wisconsin, the city’s public library is a 40,000 square foot stone and red brick landmark welcoming visitors to Franklin’s Civic Center.

Designed in a postmodern Federalist architectural style and dedicated in 2002, the mission of the Franklin Public Library is to provide quality services, resources, and lifelong learning opportunities to meet the informational, educational, cultural, and recreational needs and interests of its community.

Surrounded by green space and next to historical buildings in Lions Legend Park, the library offers all age programming and provides a public gathering place for the people of Franklin and surrounding areas.

Interior highlights include: a technology room available for classes and group use, a dedicated Young Adult/Teen Area with computer stations and socializing booths, a Children’s Activity Center featuring an oversized Children’s Tree, a cozy fireplace sitting area, a framed art collection, and the Sievert and Fadrow community rooms.

Outside, the library has an enclosed Reading Garden patio, a seven-flag Veterans Memorial, and a Rain Garden maintained by the City of Franklin Environmental Commission.
