Please click on “Agendas and Minutes” on the right hand side of this page in order to see the minutes of the Dec. 11, 2017, Library Board meeting and also to view the minutes of previous board meetings.

The Library Board approved asking the Police Jury to advertise for bids for construction of a new Chataignier Branch building.  The Police Jury has also approved at its meeting, and advertising for bids has begun.  We are very excited over the prospect of providing better service to the Chataignier area through a new branch library.

The Main Library and all branches are closed Friday Dec. 8th due to the weather. Generally when the Evangeline Parish schools are closed due to a weather event, the Library system closes also.

We plan to reopen at the regular time, 8 am, in Ville Platte on Saturday Dec. 9th. We are open on Saturdays at the main library from 8 am to 12 noon. However, Detel has just notified us that the Internet to the library seems to be down. You may want to call us on Saturday morning at 337 363-1369 to see what services are available before you make your trip to the library. We will do our best to be open as scheduled and have all regular services available.
