Meet Your Director


Welcome to the Racine Public Library!

I invite you to come and visit our beautiful facility. Relax with a good book or magazine in one of our many comfortable chairs by the windows, which afford awe-inspiring views of Lake Michigan. Browse our outstanding collection of adult and children’s materials. Borrow materials from another library, if we don’t own what you’re looking for. Book one of our meeting rooms for your group’s next gathering, or attend one of the library’s programs. Ask our helpful reference staff to guide you when you need information. Escape to a quiet corner of the library to concentrate on a special project and get away from telephone calls.

If you’re too far away to visit us, our hope is that you’ll find a search of our web site to be helpful.

The City of Racine takes great pride in its library. As the City Librarian, I want your visit to be rewarding, so I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Our goal is to provide excellent service to you, the users of the Racine Public Library. Enjoy!A picture of Jessica MacPhail, the library director at Racine Public Library.
