Monetary Donations
The citizens of La Crosse are very generous in their support of their library system. Individuals and businesses who go beyond their annual tax contribution and provide direct financial support to the library may be recognized on the Wall of Honor located in the south foyer of the Main library.

By remembering the library in your will through a bequest or a foundation, you will help to insure that the La Crosse Public Library will continue to serve future generations. Contact Director Kelly Krieg-Sigman about all giving opportunities, or to be added to our fundraising list.

The library welcomes the Gift of Time from qualified volunteers. If you are interested in being a general volunteer at the Main or Community Libraries email our Volunteer Manager, Heather Miller, at or call 608-789-7125.

Give-a-Gift has been our signature fundraising event since 2003. The premise is simple: approximately $10,000 of new books on all subjects, for all ages, on display at the Main library for this event. These items can be purchased and re-gifted to the library in honor of a loved one. Since 2003, this event has put over $100,000 worth of new materials on library shelves. If you would like an invitation, please email Elaine Phillips, administrative assistant, at or call her at 608-789-7143.

Please review our brochure for donating used items before bringing materials in.
