The Natchitoches Parish Library’s (NPL’s) Louisiana Symbols Reading Trail is now open at Pierson and Mallett Park (behind the fire station on East 5th). All panels are the work of local student artists. Submissions were accepted from any student in the parish and voted on for their categories. Students were asked to submit original artworks and poems about a Louisiana symbol of their choosing. With just a short walk you can learn more about our beautiful state, courtesy of children of Natchitoches Parish.
