The Friends of Bossier Parish Library want to invite parents and students of all ages to an information program about library resources.  The program will be at the Bossier Central Library conference room on Thursday, September 11, at 5 p.m.  Seating is limited, so please sign up at the reference desk ahead of time.

Reference librarian Debbie Adams will talk about the wealth of reference resources available in house as well as online.  Her presentation will include where to find materials you need within the library and how to conduct research from your home computer.

Brittainy Pope works in Teen Services and will give an overview of what is offered for young adults such as homework help, how to join the Teen Advisory Board, and teen activities that encourage young people to use the library.  

History and Outreach Specialist Pam Carlisle will present information about the archives, and other Bossier Parish historical resources housed in the History Center.
