More than 3,800 children and adults attended programs the eight branches of the Iberville Parish Library, which featured performances by nationally known artists and storytellers throughout the summer.

There was also strong participation in the Summer Reading Program. Children kept a log of all the books they read during the summer and entered a drawing to win prizes. Children completing the program received a certificate and a coupon from McDonalds of Plaquemine for free French fries. 

Programming was made possible by support from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, Iberville Parks and Recreation District, Kiwanis Club of Iberville, Iberville Quilter’s Guild, East Iberville INC, PCS Nitrogen, Friends of the Iberville Public Libraries, McDonalds of Plaquemine, Grosse Tete/Rosedale Lions Club, Layne Langley of the LSU Ag Center and Pointe Coupee Electric.

The library also acknowledges the help of the East Iberville Volunteer Fire Department who presented a fire safety program and of Lynne Arboneaux of Louisiana Rural Health Association who provided health information to East Iberville residents.
