Local libraries offer a variety of events in November

The Lafourche Parish Public Library system offers a variety of events for every age throughout the month of November. The public is invited and encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities offered through the parish public libraries.

Have your child’s fingerprints taken and DNA swabbed during the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office Child ID program, to be held in November at several Lafourche Parish Public Library branches. Children’s information is placed on LPSO child ID forms and given to parents for safekeeping. This free program will take place at the following library branches:

Lockport Branch, 720 Crescent Drive: November 13, 5 p.m.
South Lafourche Branch, 16241 E. Main Street: November 15, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Check out ways to celebrate the contributions of local veterans at your library:
Local veterans are invited to a Veterans’ reception at 9:30 a.m. on November 7 at the Larose Library. View the library’s Veterans’ Day display and enjoy refreshments.

Veterans can enjoy cookies and refreshments throughout the day on November 11 and view the library’s veterans’ display throughout November at the South Lafourche Branch.

Veterans can enjoy refreshments and socialize with others at the Raceland Branch Library’s Veterans’ Social at 10:30 a.m. on November 14 at the library, 177 Recreation Drive.

Children and teens ages 8 to 18 can build and program machines with LEGO Robotics at the main branches of the Lafourche Parish Public Library in November.

Children ages 8 to 12 years old can create their own folded book during a two-day workshop at the Lockport Library, at 10:30 a.m. on November 24 and 25.
