Mineral P0int Public Library
The Mineral Point Public Library anchors the downtown and is a wonderful combination of old and new. The 100-year old building underwent a major remodeling in 2011-2012 and now offers three accessible floors containing library materials, public computers, Wi-Fi, downloadable resources, study rooms, a conference room, a Used Book Shop and public restrooms. Of special interest is the Mineral Point Library Archive, a critically acclaimed collection of valuable historical materials. Among its treasures are the papers of TV personality Allen Ludden donated by his wife, the actress Betty White, letters between President Woodrow Wilson and his friend, Mineral Pointer David Jones, Opera House memorabilia and local records of businesses, mining history, residences and cemeteries.
