All three La Crosse Public Library locations will be closed for the Memorial Day three-day weekend. We'll be closed Saturday, May 24 - Monday, May 26.

5.20.2104.  Need an idea for a great teen read? Stop by Main Library to use a brand new reader advisory tool— a wall of books! Well, to be accurate, it’s really a wall of the covers of some of our favorite books. Our Teen Advisory Council and teen librarian Linda put together a list of books we’d recommend to teens and then we made a wall of book recommendations. So, stop on in and check out our “wall” and see if your favorite book is on it!

5.19.2014  We had another great National History Day Celebration this year, awarding more than $1000 to middle school students for excellence in research.  Check out this great clip from WKBT--it's great to see such enthusiasm. Here's a list of this year's winners.

Join us Sunday, May 18th for a special family-friendly Footsteps of La Crosse Historic Walking Tour. This tour covers the 10th/Cass District and starts at 2:30. It's a fun and fact-filled 30-minute tour suitable for all ages. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED! Call Archives at 608.789.7136 or email archives@lacrosselibrary.org.

There is still plenty of time to check out heirloom seeds and get them in the ground! We’ve got a great variety of beans, peas, squash, lettuce, herbs, flowers (and more) that are ready to hit the dirt. Each species comes with an easy-to-follow Save This Seed bookmark that gives simple directions on how to save some seed and return it for the next season. Swing by Main on Saturday, May 17, 9 am-1pm for tomato seedlings. You can choose four plants from the ten offered.
