Lots happening in May at your library

May is a busy month at the Lafourche Parish Public Library. Be on the lookout for many special programs at your library celebrating Mother’s Day, National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, and more. It’s all free at the library.

Several library branches will host special programs for children to honor their mothers in observance of Mother’s Day. Here are a few examples.

The South Lafourche Branch Library, 16241 E. Main Street in Cut Off, will host its annual Mother’s Day Tea Party for children and their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, or any other special woman in their life at 5:30 p.m. on May 6. It’s free and open to the public.

Children can make personalized Mother’s Day cards for Mom at a Mother’s Day Storytime at 11 a.m. on May 7 at the Larose Branch, 305 E. Fifth Street.

Children ages 4 to 12 can create a vintage book page butterfly flowerpot for Mom at 4 p.m. on May 7 at the Lockport Branch, 720 Crescent Avenue. Registration is required to attend, so sign up at the library.

People of all ages can create a special Mother’s Day painting for Mom or the special woman in their life at 5 p.m. on May 7 at the Raceland Library, 177 Recreation Drive.

The Golden Meadow Branch, 1403 N. Bayou Drive, will host a Mother’s Day Storytime Book Club at 5 p.m. on May 12, featuring P.D. Eastman’s Are You My Mother? Register your child in advance to receive a free copy of the book, while supplies last, thanks to a grant from Target. One book per household.

May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. Get some exercise and fresh air at these library programs.

Enjoy a walk in the park with Mrs. Charlotte, the Lockport Branch’s librarian, at 10:30 a.m. on May 5 and May 19 at the Town of Lockport’s Bayou Side Park, weather permitting.

Walk off the pounds with Larose Library staff members at 9 a.m. on May 8 at the Larose Regional Park walking path. Bottled water will be provided.

Walk the nearby track with Raceland Library staff members at 10:30 a.m. on May 13 and May 27. Water will be provided.
