La Crosse libraries extend hours for first time in months



La Crosse’s public libraries are getting back to more normal service. 

Library director Shanneon Grant says public hours have resumed at the north and south branch libraries, which had not admitted customers for many months during the pandemic.    

The branches are each open three days a week for four hours a day.  On Thursday, the north library operates from 2 to 6 p.m.  The Main Street library is now open Wednesday nights until 8, and every other night until 6.      

Grant says the library has sufficient funding now to have more staffers in the buildings.   The extra two hours at the Main Library are on Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m.
