Blast Off into SummerFest

Kick start your summer by attending the Ouachita Parish Public Library's annual SummerFest on Saturday, May 18th.
Themed "Universe of Stories" the Ouachita Parish Public Library is using treats, activities, a challenge, and even prizes to motivate participation in their Summer Reading Challenge. Festivities for SummerFest are being held at the Main Branch Library from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. with live music, food trucks, and plenty of activities for space cadets of all ages.

The Summer Reading Challenge encourages participants to read two of six out-of-this-world books, chosen by the library, during the summer. Register for the Summer Reading Challenge at SummerFest and after reading the titles chosen, vote for them at to mark your place for the prize drawing. Prizes include a bike for a child or a tablet for adults and teenagers. Participants can also win smaller prizes by partaking in hands-on STEAM challenges.
