If you missed seeing the 150 Years of Lake Charles exhibit, here's your chance! The exhibit is on loan from the City of Lake Charles and will be on display at Central Library from April 2-30. The exhibit is designed to spark an interest in our shared history, start a conversation, and ultimately bring us closer together.
We want you to share your experiences with us.
How was daily life for you before the digital age?
What are some of the greatest lessons you have learned in your lifetime?
Come and share your story with other story tellers!
Join us for a bi-monthly creative writing workshop where teens and tweens will learn and discuss the basics of writing fiction. Attendees will also have a chance to talk about their own writing as well as receive feedback if they are interested. Registration is required.
As the Library works on its next Strategic Plan, staff are conducting community engagement conversations at branch libraries throughout the Calcasieu Parish Public Library system.
The public is welcome to come to one or more of these meetings and are encouraged to discuss their current and projected needs for our community and how the Library can best respond to those needs.
The Library is interested in hearing from library users AND non-users.
Have you even wanted to grow mold? Want to know where bacteria lives in the library? Maybe find out what grows on our cell phones! Come to the library to run some of your very own science experiments to find out the answers to these questions and more! Science equipment and snacks will be provided. (See your scientific results on the bulletin board at the library or posted online)
Do you have the money smarts needed to make your dreams come true? Teens are invited to join us as we learn new money management skills as part of ALA’s Money Smart Week – April 22nd-28th! Come and get some great information and tips from the experts at Lakeside Bank!
Story times will focus on using music and movement to get kids active. Story time is a fun way for children to develop early literacy skills while using music, dancing, singing and of course reading skills.
