Adult Programs


The Adult Library is a comfortable space in the Library for reading, studying, or working. Within the Adult Library is our Periodical Area containing a beautiful fireplace to sit by while reading our newspapers and magazines, (no seating available at this time). We also offer a public Conference Room, History Wall, restrooms, and computer area. Before you enter the Adult Library you will walk past our New Arrivals area where all of the new items added to the Adult collection are kept. Enjoy the monthly art displays on our Viroqua Area Foundation Community Art Wall and inside our Marie Weltzin Art Display case.  For a complete schedule of upcoming adult programs please visit the library calendar on this website.
