We received this note from the APW Back Pack Committee:
The APW Back Pack Committee would like to thank the Parish Public Library and all the people who so generously donated non-perishable food items for our Back Pack Program! There were over 117 pounds of food collected. Thank you to all!
The Parish Library is excited to announce the receipt of a grant of $500.00 from the Walmart Foundation. The grant will be used to expand our collection of DVDs and Books on CDs. Look for new additions in those areas! Thanks to Walmart for supporting our Library and our community.
The donation box for the APW Backpack Program was so successful that it will continue to be here at the Library throught the Holidays. The program is an initiative aimed at providing students who have been identified by the district to be at risk of hunger on the weekends with a bag of nutritious food each Friday. They are looking for donations of non-perishable foods, preferably small individual sized items. Please bring them to the library. You can bring them with you when you attend the Annual Holiday Open House.
The Parish Public Library is excited to present a fall event for the entire family. The date is Friday, October 23 from 6:30-8:30 pm. There will be Legos, a craft, food and fun. At 7:00 pm Chris Wheel, a professional magician will perform. The show is family friendly using card tricks to tricks with fruit. The show is a wild ride and it will amaze all!
