Pine Prairie Branch will close today at noon.  We regret the inconvenience.  Please consider going to the Mamou Branch or the Main Library this afternoon.  Mamou will be open until five, and the Main Library (Ville Platte) will be open until 6.  Please call 363-1369 if you need directions.

The main library and all branches are closing today at 4 p.m. due to the impending serious storm moving in from Texas.  There may be flooding conditions, delayed openings, or building closures tomorrow, depending on conditions at specific branches and road conditions.  For more information, listen to KVPI AM FM or watch for announcements on this site.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to serving you at our regular hours as soon as possible.


The Friends of the Library will meet tonight at 6 pm at the main library.  We will enjoy popcorn and soft drinks and exchange ideas for upcoming Friends projects.  We will also learn about plans for the new main library and elect officers for this year.  Please come and bring a friend!

Friends memberships are:

  • $5 individual
  • $10 family

You are welcome to attend the Friends meeting tonight without joining to learn more about the Friends.  All our meetings are open to the public.
