Concordia Parish Library will begin re-opening on Saturdays beginning September 12th at the Ferriday Library from 8:30 until 12 noon.
School has started and the library hopes this will help families and students. The library purchases many resources that can be used online and Homework LA is an excellent source. They provide live tutors through their website for 60 different subjects. This is available 2 p.m. to midnight seven days a week. The library has laptops and hotspots available for check out as well.
The virtual program now is the story of Walt Disney and His Empire. Go to the Library webpage and click Walt Disney! Georgiann Potts did a great job researching, and it is truly entertaining and informational. Take advantage of this program and it is suitable for all ages.
