Library: Bossier Library Expo is coming

Louisiana is known for its festivals.  We know how to have a good time, so get ready for the 2015 Annual Bossier Libraries Expo on Saturday, May 9 from 1p.m.—4p.m. at the Bossier Central Library.  This event is free with lots of fun things to do and see.

When you get there, the first thing you will want to do is go to the Information booth and pick up tickets for a free hot dog, cookie, drink, and popcorn.  Be sure to pick up your passport there too.  Follow the directions on the passport and turn it in before you leave to enter a drawing for an iPad.

The Friends of Bossier Parish Library are sponsoring Mugs Photo Booth that will be inside the History Center where you can have your picture made for free and keep as a souvenir.   Group photos can be taken with several friends.  If you want to have a little more fun costumes will be provided by the photographer.    

This is a small sample of what will be going on at this year’s Expo.  Mark it on your calendar and join us for fun, food, and so much more.
