Lafourche Library announces March events

Lafourche Library announces March events


The Lafourche Parish Public Library will forgive outstanding fines in any amount for overdue, damaged or lost items in March in exchange for varying amounts of donated nonperishable food or pet supplies. Fines associated with laptops, iPads, electronics, or video games are not eligible for fine forgiveness.

Any person who owes money to the library for anything except ineligible items – from less than $1 to more than $100 -- can bring in items according to a suggested donation schedule to clear their library record and once again enjoy library services. The library will also forgive fines for any overdue items (except ineligible items) returned in good condition in March. Donated items will benefit local organizations.

For more information, drop by your local Lafourche library branch.
