News, Reviews, and Events

A new season of Monday Mornings at Main returns on September 11. Join us at 9:30 AM every Monday this September-November for a series of lifelong learning for ages 55 and better. Each week we'll hear from a different local expert on a wide-variety of topics from music, to local businesses, to regional and international history. View the full schedule of speakers below.

Good news! You can now reserve up to 100 library items at a time. Items found in the Winding Rivers Library System catalog can be put on reserve and delivered to any of our three La Crosse Public Library locations for easy pickup.

We've set up a trial of Kanopy, a video streaming service, and we'd like La Crosse residents to try it out for free. Click on this link, set up an account (e-mail and password), then enter your library card and PIN. Then choose from over 7,000 films- from classics, to indies, to documentaries- and start watching!
