he staff from around Evangeline parish wants to let our patrons know that WE MISS YOU! We extend a very sincere wish that your Easter season is a peaceful, healthy, and a blessed one. Even though the main library and the branches are closed, the library is still your resource for self-education, information, and entertainment. Remember that you can continue checking out items (books, movies, audiobooks, etc) WITHOUT using your regular library card. Our Overdrive/Libby app will allow you to get a free VIRTUAL LIBRARY CARD by using your cell phone number. Please see instructions on our webpage @ www.evangelinelibrary.org or www.lsw.overdrive.com to learn more. Email me with any concerns: slemoine@yahoo.com. Also, don’t worry late fees! Our Fine Free period will continue until May 16, 2020 and may be extended if this situation does not improve.
Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we are indeed all int this together! Never forget that libraries can change lives… even through the Cloud!
