10.21.14   We've fielded lots of requests for Rosetta Stone language-learning products. For a long time, the company has been reluctant to sell their products to libraries. Now, however, we can offer you access on our website to Rosetta Stone for Libraries, which includes the first-level lessons for thirty different languages.

Because of licensing restrictions, we can only offer home use to residents of the city of La Crosse, but anyone can use it in the library.

10.20.14   Since we offer Overdrive as a service, we are obligated to let you know about a privacy/security issue with Adobe Digital Editions, that's recently been revealed. This provides a good overview of the situation. We'll keep you updated as the situation changes. 

Parents and adults interested in tips and information on the importance of reading in the lives of our community's preschoolers are invited to a special workshop on Saturday Nov 8, 9:30-11:30 am in the Main Library auditorium.

10.13.14 Due to RAIN RAIN RAIN, the Dark La Crosse Tours scheduled for Monday, Oct 13, are all cancelled. We have contacted everyone who signed up--if you were part of a group, the person who signed you up has been notified. We are hopeful that we can reschedule and will be in touch when we have more information.
