The Evangeline Parish Library Board of Control meeting originally scheduled for Monday Nov. 17th has been rescheduled to Monday Nov. 24th.  The Board will meet at the new main library (916 W. Main St., Ville Platte) at 4 p.m.  The meeting is open to the public, and public attendance and comments are encouraged.  An agenda will be posted at the Library no later than close of business Thurs. Nov. 20th.

Click on the survey icon on this webpage to take a very short (3 questions) survey to help the library staff plan programming for next year.  There is a space at the end for any comments or suggestions you may have.  You do not have to put any contact information to participate in the survey.  However, if you would like us to contact you, please include a phone number or email address.  Thank you!

Our last computer classes of the fall are Monday Nov. 10th.  Tobin Deville will teach “Computer Security” from 10 a.m. to noon and “Computer Tutor” from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the new main library’s multipurpose room.  Classes are FREE to participants.  Registration is strongly encouraged (call 363-1369 to register), but walk-ins are also accepted on a space-available basis.  Preference is given to registrants living, working, owning property, or attending school anywhere within Evangeline Parish.

These classes are for adults only.

Tonight’s “Talented Tuesdays” presenter is local author Nancy Duplechain, author of the “Dark Bayou” trilogy.  She will discuss how she publishes for Kindle as well as with physical books.  The presentation begins at 6 pm tonight at the main library.  Learn how to get started in E Publishing!
