The Mall and Walker Library

A section of the long, rectangular parkland known as The Mall lies immediately north of Walker Library in the Uptown area of Minneapolis. The Walker Library is soon to be rebuilt on its current site at 2880 Hennepin Avenue. The vision for the library imagines connections to its vibrant Uptown surroundings. The Mall’s proximity to the library, as well as to the Midtown Greenway, Hennepin Avenue, and the Uptown transit station, presents an opportunity to create an improved park that enhances connections to all four places.

Library public participation history
Following a series of public meetings in the summer of 2009, the Walker Library Community Advisory Committee developed a vision for the new Walker Library. The committee, made up of local residents and representatives from community organizations and businesses, met over six months to participate in discussions, vision exercises and surveys to create the vision for the new Walker Library.
