The main library and all branches will be closed Dec. 23rd through Dec. 27th and closed again Dec. 30th through Jan. 2nd.

The main library (Ville Platte) and the Turkey Creek branch will open at 8 a.m. on Wed. Dec. 29th, rather than at their usual Wed. opening time of 10 a.m.

The Library Board and staff wish everybody happy holidays, a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.  We thank you for your support in 2010 and look forward to serving you in 2011.

All branches of the Library system will be closed in the morning, Dec. 15th, so that staff can attend a workshop at the main library in Ville Platte, which will also be closed to the public in the morning.  We are preparing to offer E-books beginning in early January.  Libraries will open in the afternoon at the following times: Ville Platte, 12:30; Mamou, Basile, Pine Prairie, and Turkey Creek, each 1 p.m.; Chataignier, 2 p.m.
