La Crosse public library looks for public input

The La Crosse Public Library is looking for the community’s input when it comes to deciding their next chapter.

Earlier this month, the Library released its Strategic Plan which lays out the different goals the organization would like to accomplish.

Saturday morning, the library hosted it’s first of three listening sessions to let community members voice their opinions on how the library should spend it’s resources during the next five years.

Leaders say the new plan goes beyond books”Poor librarys build collections, good librarys build services and great librarys build communinties. And in order to move along that timeline … along that evolutnary line, we have to move beyond what has been the traditional view of what has been public library’s for the last 50 years, ” Library Director Kelly Krieg-Sigman said.

If you missed Saturday’s session, you still have a chance to share your thoughts.

Additional listening sessions will be held at the South Branch Library next Wednesday and at the North Branch the following Wednesday.
