There are two events that will continue though the month of November at the main library and all of the branches:  Toys for Tots and Food for Families.  Particulars: The incentive for participating in the Toys for Tots program through the library is the opportunity to have fines that may be on your account waived up to $10 (one waive per account per toy).  The gift must be unwrapped, new and still in the package. Let the clerks at the circulation desk know when you drop off a gift. If you simply want to give from the heart, just drop off a gift at any of the six libraries around the parish. Items donated will be brought to the local police stations for distribution. Also, the libraries around the parish will continue to be a food drop off point for the Food for Families program.

Another November program that the main library in Ville Platte is participating in is the Evangeline Arts Council “Rocking on Main” fundraiser. A beautiful donated rocker that was hand painted by artist Stephen Hawkins will be on display in the multipurpose room at the main library in Ville Platte for folks to view and bid on if they so desire. The other four rockers will be on display in business around the parish. See the Evangeline Arts Council Facebook page for locations.

Monday, November 16th, the French Table in Ville Platte will meet at 3pm to chat and share stories in French. The public is welcomed to attend. Masks are required.

Thursday, November 19th, the Books & Beyond Teen Club will gather to make Dream Catchers from 4-5 pm. New members are always welcomed to attend. Masks are required.

Lots of new books were recently added to our collections all over the parish so please visit a library near you to discover the rich variety of reads that awaits you!

The staff genuinely appreciates the never-ending understanding, patience and support it continues to receive from all patrons! Please get updates at or on our Facebook page and continue to request books and other materials by phone or by email at  Never forget that libraries do change lives… even through the Cloud! Main library: 337-363-1369.
