Summer Reading Patrons Win Big

Many of you may have fond memories of visiting the library growing up. Maybe to hear a story or share in an activity with your friendly neighborhood librarian? Or perhaps you remember being visited by the bookmobile when you were just learning to read? Just because you have grown up does not mean that your local library does not have something interesting for you! The Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL), in Natchitoches, and Northeast Branch (NEB), in Campti, both have dedicated programming for adults, including a couple of programs targeted at seniors.

These special programs vary from month to month, with the NEB’s most recent being a senior adult bingo day. The section surrounding the circulation desk was transformed into a mini bingo hall for a few hours Wednesday. With over 15 participants, there was plenty of fun to be had. And, like all library programming, completely free to attend. The next NEB Senior Bingo Day will be Wednesday, September 18, at 11 AM.

The NPL also has a bi-weekly “Adult Play Day” with a variety of activities for senior adults. Friendly chatting is encouraged as participants listen to music, play Pokeno, make a craft, color, and play games with the group. Snacks, coffee, and tea are also provided courtesy of the Friends of the Natchitoches Parish Library (FONPL). The next Adult Play Day will be Thursday, September 5, from 10-11 AM.

For questions about these or any other library programs please call Alan Niette, Community Outreach Coordinator (318-238-9236).
