Visiting La Crosse County Library Branches

Trending In May

Celebrate Libraries® visited La Crosse County Library branches in Bangor, West Salem and Homen, WI this week.  Audio interviews were recorded with librarians Shari Axelsen (Bangor), Deen Layland (Holmen) and Chris McArdle Rojo (Holmen).

Each of the interviewees had wonderful stories to share and we look forward to publishing the interviews in coming weeks. One example: Shari Axelsen manages the John Bosshard Memorial Library in Bangor. Shari’s grandmother was also the librarian in Bangor and Shari remembers the library as almost a second home while she was growing up.
