Looking to the Future of the La Crosse Public Library
The La Crosse Public Library and our community partners are looking to the future and planning for proposed community spaces at the South Community Library and the Main Street Library. We’re working with MSR Design, a Minneapolis-based architectural firm, to help develop two separate plans based on your feedback.
One proposal is to create a potential mixed-use community facility, which could possibly co-locate the existing South Community Library with a neighborhood senior center and other related public services. A separate proposal would help revamp the multipurpose room (former museum space) at the Main Street Library.
Thank you to everyone from throughout the city that provided their feedback at one of our public meetings or with the community feedback survey. All of your ideas and comments have been submitted directly to MSR to help them with this longterm planning process. Stay tuned for details about upcoming public meetings and other ways that you can join in the conversation.
The community feedback survey is now closed.
Public Meeting Reports
Thank you to everyone from throughout the city that joined us from March 18-20 for a series of public meetings with the architects from MSR Design. They received a tremendous amount of input and generated a lot of incredible ideas as the community came together to plan for the future of our public libraries and public spaces. MSR has compiled all of the feedback they received at these public meetings into comprehensive reports, which are now available below.

This is only the start of the planning process as we work together to develop proposals and respond to community priorities. MSR Design will be back in La Crosse at the end of April for another series of public meetings. Stay tuned for an updated meeting schedule.
