The former South Branch library in La Crosse has been closed for more than a month, because of city budget cuts.
People living near the library building will meet next week to discuss ideas for how to use that property now.
The 6 p.m. Monday meeting will take place at the Faith United Methodist Church on Redfield Street.
City officials have begun the process of declaring the library on 16th Street as “surplus property,” which could eventually be sold.
During budget time last year, the city council cut $100,000 in funding for the library system, and the library board in late November voted to shut down the south-side branch.
Materials from the South Branch were transferred to the two remaining city libraries on Main Street and Gillette Street.
