UWM Libraries Reopening Status

All three UWM Libraries locations – the Golda Meir Library, Waukesha Library, and Washington County Library—are fully open to everyone, including the general public. Building hours are posted on our hours page.

All library services are operating normally, and staff are available on-site and online to help with your study and research needs. The Grind coffee shop in the Golda Meir Library will reopen at the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols are in place. See our reopening roadmap for additional information.

As cases of COVID-19 continue to increase in our community, even among those who are vaccinated, UWM is requiring that students, employees and visitors wear masks indoors while on campus beginning  August 4, 2021.

Students, employees and visitors on all UWM campuses must wear masks indoors when sharing a room or in a common area or other space with another person. This includes wearing masks when in the same room such as a classroom, lab, conference room, bathroom, hallway, lobby or waiting area.

UWM strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccination as the best way to protect your health and help all of us return to normal activities.

All COVID-19 vaccinations are free. The UWM Vaccination Clinic in the Student Union is accepting walk-ins and appointments. For more details, go to the UWM vaccine clinic website.
