The Library mourns the death of Mr. Gerald Duplechin.  Mr. Duplechin was the Library Board of Control member representing the Pine Prairie/Turkey Creek area.  He had resigned from the board recently due to ill health.  He was a wonderful board member and a fine man.  He will be very much missed.

In Mr. Duplechin’s honor, the Pine Prairie Library will be closed from 1 p.m. onward on Wednesday, July 1st, so that staff can attend his visitation and funeral service in Ville Platte.  Visitation will be at Ardoin’s Funeral Home in Ville Platte, followed by the funeral mass at Sacred Heart in Ville Platte and burial.  There will be a rosary at Ardoin’s at 2:15 p.m.

 

Back by popular demand, Gebo the Clown is great!  He performs Tues. June 23rd at 10 a.m. at Turkey Creek branch and at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Main Library (916 W. Main St., Ville Platte).  On Wed. the 24th he performs at 10 a.m. at Pine Prairie Branch and at 2 p.m. at Mamou Branch.  On Thurs. the 25th he performs at 10 a.m. at Basile Branch and at 3 p.m. at the Chataignier Village Hall (right next to the Chataignier Branch).  Gebo is one of our grant-sponsored performers, coming to us through Decentralized Arts Funding as administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts.  Admission is FREE.  Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
