Friends of the Library, Cabot Corporation, Basile State Bank, Raising Cane’s Chicken, Pine Prairie Energy, and JD Bank. We are grateful for your support! The summer readers from around the parish are really going to enjoy reading for super cool prizes because of you!

We received a generous donation yesterday from PAA Natural Gas Storage, LLC, to help support prizes and supplies for Summer Reading. Unfortunately, the donation was received after calendars, brochures, and webpage were already set up, so we can’t add them to our printed materials this summer. Nonetheless, the Library Board and staff are deeply grateful for PAA’s support of our parish and of Summer Reading. Thank you so much!

The last meeting was May 16th in Ville Platte. The next meeting is scheduled for July 25th at 4 pm in Ville Platte. All meetings are open to the public, and public comments are welcomed. Refreshments will be served.
