We are monitoring the situation in the Gulf and may have changes to library schedules this week. Branches and the main library may close early, have delayed openings, or not open at all on some days this week if weather conditions make driving and roads especially dangerous. Also, programs scheduled for this week may have to be cancelled or rescheduled. We will post notifications as conditions change and will also notify KVPI about any closures, etc. Thank you for understanding as this situation is still uncertain.

Storyteller, actress & author Daphne Thomas will be at the Turkey Creek Branch today, 6/6/17, @ 10 am then Ville Platte Main at 2 & 6 pm. She will perform at the Pine Prairie Branch tomorrow, 6/7/17, at 10 am then at the Mamou Teen Center @ 2pm and on Thursday, 6/8/17, she will perform at the Basile Branch @ 10 am and the Chataignier Village Hall at 3 pm. Please see the Summer Reading icon for details.

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!
