Public Transit + Walking (Amtrak/Megabus):

Milwaukee's Intermodal Station is about 6 blocks from the Library.  Trains run to/from Chicago every couple of hours, so this is definately a viable option for folks coming from out of town.  Please check Amtrak's site for rates and schedules. Same for Megabus.

Once you arrive at the Intermodal, exit through the front doors.  Turn left and walk west for half a block, then turn right onto 6th Street.  Walk North on 6th (under the freeway) for 3 blocks.  Turn left on Wisconsin Ave. and walk up to 8th.  The Library is right there.
