Chippewa Falls Public Library

105 West Central Street
Chippewa Falls, WI 54729



The Chippewa Falls Public Library serves city and county residents of all ages by providing access to materials and services which meet their informational, educational and recreational needs.


The Chippewa Falls Public Library opened its doors to the community on February 5, 1894. In 1903, the library moved from the old McBean Building to a new Carnegie-funded location. The current building at 105 West Central Street has been the library's home since August 9, 1969.

Construction of the present library building was started in mid-1968 and was completed about one year later, with the move being made from the old building on August 9, 1969. Dedicated to service, this new facility is both beautiful and functional and is a great asset to our community and to the entire Chippewa Valley area.

The library serves in many ways to help meet the cultural, informational and recreational needs of our citizens. Although the current library was considered spacious when it opened in 1969, today the building is almost overflowing, due to the increased size and variety of our current collections. Compare the two pictures below to note how much our use of space has changed over the last 30 years.
