Per instructions from the City of La Crosse, all City of La Crosse staff and visitors are now required to wear a mask or cloth face-covering that covers their mouth and nose when inside a City of La Crosse building.
Patrons requesting materials will now receive electronic or phone notification that their items are available. Once a patron receives their hold notification, they can come to the Main St. Library to pick up their items during our current hours: Mon-Tue; Thu-Fri: 10am - 6pm; Sat: 1 - 5pm. For additional details on changes to the pickup/returns process, please click here.
