Program Description

Event Details

After a series of community town hall meetings where we received feedback directly from our community members and library staff, our library administration and board of control worked together to create a community-focused strategic plan.  This is YOUR library, and as part of our commitment to serving YOU, Bossier Parish Libraries and the Louisiana Department of Health present this series of community conversations on some tough topics.  We're breaking the rules of conversation by talking about all those things we've been taught to not talk about.

This virtual event will take place each Wednesday in June from 6pm-7pm
