Library Card Sign-Up Month
As we all have experienced, it's been a September like no other. If you are a member of our library community, you may know that we typically celebrate Library Card Sign Up Month annually during September. Hurricane Ida threw a wrench in our plans this year, but we did have the opportunity to talk to some of our patrons back in August about what they love most about their Lafourche Parish Public Library. Check out what they had to say in this special episode of Out and About Lafourche. We love our library community!
