Happy New Year! The Board of Directors and staff from around the Parish wish all of our patrons a healthy, happy, safe, and memorable start to 2022! 

The main library and all branches will be closed on Monday, January 3, 2022.  Regular hours resume on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 with, unfortunately, the old mandate of requiring mask wearing and social distancing will be in force until further notice. Please understand that these measures are for the safety of all.

Our Turkey Creek branch library will host the traveling exhibit about an endangered species: Whooping Cranes during the month of January! Once thriving, whooping cranes are now the rarest species of crane and North America’s most endangered native bird. This traveling exhibit is made possible with generous donors like Chevron, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), The Ladies Club of Lafayette, and Audubon Nature Institute. Come by the library during their regular hours and check out this unique exhibit.  MASK WILL CONTINUE TO BE REQUIRED.

 For more information call the main library @ 337-363-1369 or email evangeline_parish@yahoo.com.
