News, Reviews, and Events

(POSTPONED UNTIL 2015) Attention amateur shutterbugs! We are looking for images that convey life in La Crosse on a typical day, to show why we like living here. Photos submitted must be taken during the 24-hour period from 12:01 am to 11:59 pm, Saturday, August 16. Photos must be taken within the township of La Crosse (sorry Shelby, French Island & Onalaska) and should be the work of an amateur photographer.

Join us today for our second library listening session at North Community Library, 1552 Kane St., at 5:30. We have responded to questions and suggestions from the first session, and will add new suggestions and questions from today's session.

Did you say BOOK SALE?! Yes we did! Friday night, August 8 from 6-8 pm is a preview for friends. Doors open at 5:30 to renew or purchase a Friends membership. Tomorrow, open to all from 9 am - 1 pm. ALL ITEMS $1 or less!

Can you believe it's August already and that we're seeing precious packets of seeds coming back from you? It's time to watch your garden every day so that you can select the very best seeds to return. My lettuce is flowering, my cumin seeds are browning, my Zinnias are full of butterflies and the zucchini is delicious.

In response to city-wide budget cuts, we have introduced a plan to keep both branches open by reducing hours and services. Today, Tuesday, August 5, is the first of three community-wide listening sessions, where members of the library board and administration will be available to take questions and suggestions and listen to your concerns. Today's session is at South, 4-5:30 pm. Additional information is available from the La Crosse Tribune website.
