Early Notice: The Library Board of Control will meet on Monday, September 11th @ 4 pm at the main library in Ville Platte. An agenda will be posted.  The public is invited to attend.

Happy Labor Day to all of our patrons around the parish from your Library Board of Control and library staff! Enjoy your day! The main library and all branches will be closed tomorrow, Monday, September 4, 2023. We will resume our normal operating hours Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

Our Artist of the Month for the month of September at the main library is Pamela Fruge Bertrand. Pam grew up in Ville Platte and started drawing in 3rd grade. Her love of drawing offered her the opportunity to study under Waven Boone, Michael Bordelon and Mrs. Gertie Mayeax. 

Speaking of Mrs. Gertie Mayeaux, I am reminded of the approaching Tournoi event (10/15/23) about which she painted a marvelous rendition of  “a Knight riding on a horse with his lance poised to spear the rings that symbolize the seven enemies of cotton: flood, drought, boll weevils, boll worm, silk, rayon and nylon”! We invite you to stop by the main library to see her art which on display by the Memory Catalog.

You can always call the main library @ 337-363-1369 or send an email to [email protected] for more information and never forget that libraries do change lives…. even in the cloud! Suzy Lemoine
