DIVE INTO SUMMER AT YOUR LIBRARY!

Summer Experience 2022:  May 31 - July 31

Are you ready to make a splash this summer at your Lafourche Parish Public Library?  Our 2022 Summer Experience is headed to a library branch near you this June and July to the theme of "Oceans of Possibilities."  
 
This year's Summer Experience is a hybrid program, meaning we will primarily have in-person offerings with a few virtual options for you to enjoy.  This summer at your Lafourche Parish Public Library is going to be fin-tastic!   The fun begins May 31!
