Reserve a Room

La Crosse Library auditorium

Thank you for choosing the meeting facilities at La Crosse Public Libraries. Meeting rooms are primarily designated for La Crosse Public Library programs and use. When not in use by the Library, meeting rooms can be used for a rental fee by community groups and organizations that wish to promote an open forum for knowledge, ideas, and cultural enrichment.

For complete details on meeting room usage and regulations see: Complete Meeting Room Policy.

Meeting room requests are self-service and may be made online below.

Meeting Room Regulations

  • Reservations can be made no more than six months in advance of the requested date. 
  • The public meeting rooms are not available for fundraising or for-profit activities; purely social functions (e.g., receptions, birthday parties, showers, etc.), or activities that, by their nature are or could be disruptive to normal library operations (e.g., loud rallies or ceremonies).

Library meeting rooms are available for public use during open hours until 15 minutes prior to closing. They are available on a first-come basis. When scheduling, keep in mind that rooms are NOT available prior to library opening time, including set-up time.
