The main library in Ville Platte will be closed Saturday, 5/27/17 and all branches will be closed Monday, May 29, 2017 in honor of Memorial Day. All branches will resume their normal operating hours on Tuesday and Summer Reading registration will continue.
We received a generous donation yesterday from PAA Natural Gas Storage, LLC, to help support prizes and supplies for Summer Reading. Unfortunately, the donation was received after calendars, brochures, and webpage were already set up, so we can’t add them to our printed materials this summer. Nonetheless, the Library Board and staff are deeply grateful for PAA’s support of our parish and of Summer Reading. Thank you so much!
