In the new library is a community room for public use.
Mary & Jerome Klos Community Room
The mission of the Hazel Brown Leicht Memorial Library is to provide efficient access to informational materials in a variety of formats in order to promote life-long learning, recreational reading, and education support needs and interests. The Library upholds the principle of freedom of expression and ensures access to information for all. As an enhancement to the utilization of the library, the Village has provided the Mary and Jerome Klos Community Room.
The population of the Village of West Salem grew from 3300 in 1980 to 4300 in 1999. The public K-12 student population has grown from 1235 to 1536 in the same time period. The West Salem Library serves as a resource for two private schools in the Village. Computer stations with Internet access are available.
The new building is designed to serve the community in several ways. A community room is available for meetings and activities. The library has adequate adult seating, a study room, and a dedicated children's room. The West Salem community is aggressively working to provide a creative and attractive setting for life long learning for all members of our community in the tradition of Mrs. Leicht, educator and former La Crosse County Superintendent of Schools.
