Celebrate your independence from late fees at the La Crosse Public Library!

Effective July 1, 2018 we've gone 'fine free' on most library materials. We're even wiping away most of the remaining late fees from your account. 

'Fine free' means the freedom to check out more books, videos and more from your public library. 

Nothing should keep you from borrowing free materials from your public library, even if you need a little extra time getting everything back.

As long as your library materials are returned, you can keep checking out more.

Charges may still apply to lost/damaged materials, special 'Lucky Day' items, and materials checked out from public libraries outside of the City of La Crosse. 

Questions on this policy or on the status of your account? Ask a librarian!

For assistance, pleae stop by the circulation desk at any of our three La Crosse Public Library locations, call our patron services line at (608) 789-7167, or email us at
