Summer Reading really and truly begins this week all over the Parish! The Bar None Ranch Pony & Petting Zoo will be on site at the following locations with lots of animals to pet and a saddled horse for rides! The first date and location is Wednesday, June 9th at the Ville Platte Main library from 2-4pm then on Tuesday, June 15th they’ll be at the Turkey Creek Branch from 10 -12 and later at he Mamou Branch from 2 – 4pm, and the last date & location is on Thursday, June 24th at the Basile Branch library from 10 – noon. If you can’t make it to one location, please visit one of the others. If you love it, visit all locations in June!  Here’s another BIG THANK YOU to our sponsors: Cabot Corporation, Eric Gil State Farm, Vidrine Ace Hardware, Bon Aimee’ Insurance & Real Estate Services, Teet’s Grocery, T-Boys Slaughter House, Basile State Bank, Mercy Regional, and Friends of the Library! It’s because of the commitment to literacy and cultural enrichment opportunities of these sponsors that these summer programs will be fun, fun, fun!

June is going to be the MAIN month of reading for prizes, crafts, and entertainment at all of our branches on the following days and times: Turkey Creek branch library on Tuesdays @ 10 am Pine Prairie branch library on Wednesdays @ 10 am, Chataignier branch library @ 1 pm (new this year), Mamou branch library @ 2 pm, and Ville Platte Main library @ 4 pm (new this year); Basile branch library on Thursdays @ 10 am. Visit our web and Facebook pages often for updates. One very special new program at the main library in Ville Platte and the branch libraries in Chataignier and Turkey Creek is one that complements our “A Cause for Paws” program called “Adopt-a-Toy Pet” program! Once a reader checks out 10 books they can choose a toy pet that will come with an adoption certificate and so much more (one pert per adoption). Ask about the program when you sign up for Summer Reading!

The Library Board of Control will meet on Thursday, June 10th at noon in the multipurpose room of the Main library in Ville Platte. The public is invited. 

 For more information call the main library @ 337-363-1369 or email evangeline_parish@yahoo.com and never forget that libraries do change lives…. even in the cloud!  Suzy Lemoine, Outreach Coordinator.
