Lafourche Library to host Tablet to Tablet Exhibit beginning in January


A new exhibit examining the evolution of books from stone tablets to digital tablets will be on display soon at the Lafourche Parish Public Library.

“Reading the World: Tablet to Tablet” will travel to the Lafourche Parish Public Library’s three main branches, arriving first at the South Lafourche Branch Library, 16241 E. Main Street, in Cut Off to be on display from January 9 through January 22. It will later be on display at the Lockport Branch Library, 720 Crescent Avenue, from January 23 through February 5 and then at the Thibodaux Branch Library, 705 W. Fifth Street, from February 6 through February 26.

The exhibit centers on the evolution of books through the centuries, from stone tablets to digital tablets, showing how different cultures have contributed to the world through the written word.

The exhibit was created by the Calcasieu Parish Public Library and Culture Fest Louisiana for display at Culture Fest Louisiana. Culture Fest Louisiana is an annual event held in Lake Charles, which is coordinated by Common Ground/Culture Fest, a local organization committed to promoting cultural awareness and understanding.

The exhibit was funded by numerous donors, and the artwork was done by Erik Jessen of Mixed Media Group.

This event is free and open to the public.
