Although it’s officially not autumn yet, the La Crosse County Library has already abandoned the summer with thoughts of fall colors, changing leaves and new books! On Sunday, September 13th we will host our 5th Annual Leave a Legacy event from 3:00-6:00pm.
Despite a big day in Wisconsin football with the Packers taking on the Bears at Noon, you can keep the hopeful celebration going by stopping by our Onalaska location to enjoy a little snack and some great refreshments as well as donate a book to the shelves of your favorite La Crosse County location.
Over the last four years, this event has added close to 1,000 new books to the shelves at Bangor, Campbell, Holmen, Onalaska and West Salem and we hope to add a few hundred more this year. You can “leave your legacy” by selecting a children’s or adult book at the event and indicating a special inscription for a book plate that is added to each item. Whether you want to honor a special family member or friend, memorialize a loved one or mark a special event, you can easily participate with your tax deductible contribution to support your favorite library locations.
We are incredibly lucky to once again have Lost Island Wine, LLC providing their wine at the event and a couple of local high school musicians also joining us to provide some great ambiance.
If you’re already tied up that afternoon or can’t slip away from your Packer party, donation forms are available at all our locations or give us a call and we can mail you out the information.
This is a unique and special way to honor the special people or occasions in your life. Close to 1,000 items added through this event over the years means thousands of readers have come across these special inscriptions and are able to enjoy these items due to the generosity of our donors.
Add your legacy to our collection and help us with our 5th Annual Leave a Legacy event on Sunday, September 13th. For more information about this special event click here.
