Mission & Vision
Our mission is to help the La Crosse community evolve, adapt, and thrive.
We envision the La Crosse Public Library as the knowledge creation center of a vibrant community, offering experience-rich spaces developed by and for our citizens and visitors.
Established in 1888, the La Crosse Public Library (LPL) serves the citizens of the entire Coulee Region, through consortial agreement, and is the resource library for the Winding Rivers Library System. La Crosse Public Library, with its flagship facility on Main Street, and two community libraries, provides a full range of library services and programs.
