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.
