Congratulations to all our Adult Reading Program participants!

We all know that reading is good for you, many of us have heard this from our parents and teachers since we were children – but carving out time for it, even when we enjoy it, is sometimes difficult. We’re busy with kids, jobs, life, and something has to give and sometimes reading is what takes a backseat! The fact that we had so many participants reading, listening to audiobooks indicates that our adult patrons are making time to read and taking advantage of a valuable community resource – their neighborhood Bienville Parish Library!

More than Books!

The Bienville Parish Library is not “just” about books, you can find audio books, DVDs, and magazines to borrow from the library. If you want to get away from home for a little while, the library offers free computer access and printing, which can be helpful if you don’t have a printer at home and don’t want to print at a costly print store. You can spend hours researching family ancestry, “check-out” eBooks or browse through over 3500 online magazines from your laptop or tablet. Need to refresh your foreign language skills? ‘Pronunciator’ can help you do that. Perhaps you need to hone your job skills to level up your career, or find a new job, you can do that with ‘Learning Library Express’. Your Librarian can help you discover an “Ocean of Possibilities” and all you need is a library card!

Oceans of Possibilities 2022 Children’s Summer Reading Program
