Our big news this week is the ribbon cutting event on Tuesday, March 26th at 11 am at the main library in Ville Platte when Healthy Start, a branch of the Family Tree, will introduce their community Nurturing Nook for new moms in Ville Platte and surrounding areas! Please come to the ribbon cutting to discover the wonderful products that will be available for new moms in need of baby items even when stores and  the library are closed! Sponsors for this program are Steel Magnolias of Louisiana and Rotary International.

Stay for the afternoon to enjoy our weekly French Talk, Coffee Chat, and Grief Counseling which will follow. Then on Wednesday, March 27the Mystery Book Club will meet @ 10:30 am to discuss their book and choose a new one. New members are always welcomed. The main library and all branches will be closed on March 29th and 30th to celebrate Easter.

Get ready for a new program at the main library that will encourage kids and adults to learn about planting vegetables and flowers! Staff member Madeleine has set up a “Seed Library” using an old card catalogue cabinet. It will house a variety of seeds donated by seed companies. We will partner with LSU Ag and Evangeline Soil and Water Conservation and over the next few months and offer educational workshops! Keep an eye out for updates. We anticipate offering this program to anyone with a valid library card in early April.
