The Evangeline Parish Library Board of Control met on January 9, 2023 for their first meeting of the New Year. One of the exciting bits of business was the announcement that the vacant property located at 3026 Stagg Street (corner of E Stagg and S. Ryan St.) in Basile has finally been purchased and the plans for designing a new branch library will begin! We will keep the public posted on the progress of this building project. Also, an election of officers was conducted: the new president is Ms. Sandra Salazar and the new vice-president is Ms. Rella Joseph. Many thanks were offered to past president Ms. Katy Marcantel and past vice-president Gaynell Coates who remain on the board. The minutes of the meeting are posted in the Board of Control Meeting Minutes (-2023) section of this webpage.
