Library to Host Blood Drive


While reading nourishes the mind and soul, the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) wants to give patrons the chance to give life to the body as well! As part of the Fine ForGIVING charity and donation drives going on through the end of December, the NPL will also be hosting a blood drive with Life-Share Blood Center on Nov. 27, 2-6 PM, in the 3rd Floor Meeting Room.

“This is a unique opportunity for our patrons to help our community and completely wipe out any overdue fines they might have,” said Community Outreach Coordinator, Alan Niette. “Our patrons are what give our library life, and now they can literally give life back to the community.”

No matter the total amount of the overdue fines or what item it was returned late (DVD, book, laptop, Wifi2Go, etc.), the NPL will offer complete forgiveness. Fines resulting from lost or damaged items may not be waived.

Those interested may sign up at the NPL’s 2nd Floor Circulation Desk, by calling 357-3280, by messaging the NPL on Facebook, or by going by the day of the blood drive. Those that sign up will receive a reminder beforehand.
