La Crosse library board picks company to plan remodel of two buildings



Remodeling plans for two La Crosse public libraries should move ahead soon, now that the library board has informally chosen an architect for the projects. 

Board members made a choice last week, after interviewing reps with four different companies from Wisconsin and Minnesota. 

The name of the company selected will be released at a later date.

Kelly Krieg-Sigman, the La Crosse library director, said the competing firms were not asked to bring in concepts for renovating the buildings.  

Renovation proposals could be ready in a few months. 

The south branch library is expected to make room for the south-side senior center, now on Denton Street. 

At the Main Street library, the staff wants to reuse the space formerly occupied by the county historical society.
