Mukwonago Community Library
Engaging, Empowering, Enriching… Your World
A member of the Bridges Library System, Mukwonago Community Library is a gathering place for people of all ages and abilities. Library staff and volunteers invite you to Family Film Night on Thursdays or to share the popcorn during Friday Flicks @ the Library.
The Community Room may be reserved for meetings or classes and the Libraryʼs Calendar of Events is full of scheduled activities. Listen to live bluegrass music, search for a job, learn a new computer program, meet an author, or join a reading group.
Discover your familyʼs history with searchable genealogical databases. Make travel plans and learn a new language or bring young ones to our special childrenʼs area and experience storytelling with friendly, Paws to Read therapy dogs. All library facilities are 100% ADA compliant.
About the Name:
The name Mequanego means “bearʼs den” or “place of the bear” in the Potawatomi language. The spelling was changed to Mukwonago in the nineteenth century because of the formerʼs similarity to Mequon. This was the tribal home of the Potawatomi Bear Clan and a native village was formerly found near Vernon Marsh and the spring-fed Mukwonago River.
