The La Crosse Public Library will be hosting a series of meetings from March 18-20 to gather input as we begin planning for the future of public spaces at the South Community Library and the Main Street Library. Please visit lacrosselibrary.org/future for more information on how to get involved and to see the full schedule of public meetings. A community survey will be available online and at the front desk of each of all three La Crosse Public Library locations starting on Wednesday afternoon.

Preschool Prep Storytime
Get ready for preschool with this step into independent learning! Each week we will read fun stories about school and prepare a back-to-school craft!
On week one, our grownups will stay in the storytime with us the whole time.
Week two we will sing a goodbye song after our first story and grownups will wait for their big kids out in the children's room.
Week three our big kids will do an entire storytime on their own. Adults should stay in the children's room to be accessible if needed.
