LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse Public Library is recognizing National Library Week by inviting everyone to sit down with a good book.
The week is being kicked off with a new campaign motto, saying 'Libraries are for Everyone'. New banners at the Library's Main Street branch are helping bring the community together, each with the new motto in English, Spanish, Hmong, and the Ho-Chunk language.
"Helping them to, as our mission statement says, 'Evolve, adapt, and thrive.' And what better way to really begin to address that mission than to send such a bold, strong visual message of inclusion?" said La Crosse Public Library Director Kelly Krieg-Sigman.
As a part of the 'Libraries are for Everyone' campaign, the La Crosse Public Library will host an annual competition for local artists to give their own interpretation of the new motto. Winning designs will be added to the Main Street branch as new campaign banners.
