Library History:

The Middleton Public Library began as a one shelf browsing unit on February 27, 1927. In 1930, the library movied into a second story room in the Village Hall. Between 1930 and 1964, the library moved to several different rooms and buildings due to increasing space needs. IIn 1964, the new City Hall provided 2,200 square feet of library space and in 1966, the Middleton Public Library joined the Dane County Library System. Between 1964 and 1990, the library continued to grown with the walls of Middleton's City Hall. In 1990, the library had it's own building with over 32,000 square feet. In 1994, the library had an online catalog and in 2004, the library underwent an expansion and renovation.

Exhibits: The Middleton Public Library regularly features works from local artists. One of the library's most impressive pieces is an origami mural, a permanent display behind the circulation desk. The mural is the creation from many hands of hundreds of community members who folded more than 3,000 models in the fall of 2010.

The Middleton Public Library has ongoing events for children, teens, and adults. Programs include storytimes, book discussions, concerts, craft programs, seasonal programs, and computer classes.
