This week, I have several extra things to mention in addition to the regular programs on the BPL calendar concerning good music, date changes, and flood information.
First, if you appreciate fine gospel music, then join us for an enjoyable evening at the East 80 Branch at 1050 Bellevue Road in Haughton on Thursday, March 24 at 5p.m. Music Director Leeonnas Richardson will lead the Bossier Parish Community College Gospel Choir in a performance celebrating Women’s History Month. Dr. Cindy Darby Coordinator for Diversity and Multicultural Relations at BPPC invites the public to attend this free program.
Second, Aulds Library will reopen on Monday, March 21st. Due to the flood situation the Adult Book Club will meet Tuesday, March 22 at 11a.m., and the Adult Evening Book Club will meet that same day at 6p.m.
Last, information about flood safety and clean-up can be found online at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, www.bt.cdc.gov and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website at www.osha.gov. Instructions on how to be safe when going back into your water damaged home and advice on the best ways to proceed with the monumental task of cleaning and disposing of damaged items following a flood are provided in detail.
If someone needs a computer but cannot get to one because of the flood BPL has computers at all locations.
