The Simmons Library, a publicly funded and managed library and an affiliate of Kenosha Public Library (KPL), serves nearly 100,000 residents in Kenosha, a Wisconsin city on Lake Michigan. Founded in 1900, Simons Library, the first permanent location of KPL, is a 9,045-square foot neoclassical revival building designed by the renowned leader for the World’s Columbian Exposition of Chicago in 1983, Architect Daniel J. Burnham. Zalmon G. Simmons, a former mayor of Kenosha, gave a donation of $150,000 for the building's construction on the condition that it be given the name of his late son. On December 17, 1974, the National Park Service recognized the structure by adding it to the National Register of Historic Places. The library was listed as a contributing property when the Library Park Historic District was established in 1988.
