OUR SUMMER READING PROGRAM IS NOW CALLED OUR

Summer Experience!

New name, same summer fun, except this year we are going 100% virtual!  Are you ready to experience a summer beyond your wildest dreams?  Our 2020 Summer Experience is headed to your home this June and July to the theme of "Imagine Your Story."  Go on an epic adventure, exploring fairy tales, mythology, and fantasy while also having so much fun ... all from the comfort and safety of home.  Imagination has no limits when you explore with Lafourche Parish Public Library this summer - your quest begins June 1!
