Fall Festival

This Thursday, October 29th, come to the library to celebrate the fall season at our Fall Festival! Children can take a candy tour through the library departments, read scary stories with Nigel, the therapy dog, play pumpkin guessing games, and make balloon animals. Don't forget to stop by the history center to see the Haunted Bossier exhibit!

Haunted Bossier

The history center is ready for Halloween! Come see our Haunted Bossier exhibit to discover whether there is any truth to ghost stories about frightening sites around the parish and to learn about fortune-telling games played in the 1890's on Halloween.

Be careful when you visit, though, because you never know what's lurking around the building... Beware of menacing black cats, spooky owls, glowing skulls, and creepy cobwebs!

This little archaeologist-in-training uses her magnifying glass to find clues about projectile points.
