It’s because of the commitment to literacy and cultural enrichment opportunities of these sponsors that these summer programs will be outstanding!

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.

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!
