The main library (Ville Platte) and the three largest branches (Basile, Mamou, and Pine Prairie) will all open tomorrow.  However, there may be computer problems due to the storms, and the computers may not be available.  Chataignier Branch will not open tomorrow afternoon.

Some staff have flooded homes or impassible roads and may not be coming in.  We ask for your patience and understanding if there are problems or delays in service.

 

The Basile Branch Library is open again!  Improvements completed include new flooring, relocated patron computers, and set up of a special conference/study room.  Storage and drainage improvements are in process.

Special thanks to Basile Branch manager Sherry Bergeron and everybody who has worked so hard throughout this improvement process.
