10.6.14 Our new-and-improved Play and Learn area, made possible through a generous grant from Fowler and Hammer, is officially open! Come celebrate with us Friday October 10 at 10:00am at Main Library- right after our preschool Footloose Friday dance party! It will give everyone a chance to thank our donors for their generous gift! And what can you do after the grand opening? Why, dress up and write letters to your favorite book characters...who just might write back! Parents can learn new games to play at home that build strong hand muscles for writing.

Over 1,400 kids (babies through teens) read and had adventures in the Library's Fizz Boom Read summer program. Kids returned to all three of our locations for another 2,100 visits in the short nine-week program. Each visit generated a sticker to build our robot AND a chance for kids to be part of a charitable donation to support the Humane Society, the Eco-Park and the Children's Museum. Great job La Crosse kids!
