Have you heard the news?  To better serve our patrons, the La Crosse Public Library is now offering a Little Pantry at the Main Library (800 Main Street), located in the lobby next to the holds shelves. Everyone is encouraged to take what you need and leave what you can.

We have a variety of non-perishable food items, toiletries and other supplies including handmade hats, scarves and mittens that were generously donated by volunteers from the Coulee Region Senior Volunteer Program.  We will also be providing baskets of toiletry items in the restrooms at our North and South Community Libraries.

This pantry is stocked entirely with items donated by library staff and you, our wonderful community members! If you are interested in donating, feel free to drop off items at the Circulation Desk.  We will gladly accept any of the following items including, but not limited to:

  • Canned and non-perishable foods
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Laundry Detergent

Thank you for contributions to support our community!
