Library: Earn yourself some ‘Library Loot’


How would you like to earn a little Library Loot?  Designed for our adult library users, the Patron Reward Program is a fun way for us to say thank you to the many people who come into the Bossier Parish Libraries every day.  We hope you enjoy it.

Library Loot can be exchanged for a reward of your choosing.  There are several ways to earn the loot:

  • Attend library events like book clubs and summer programs
  • Post comments on the library’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest
  • Use social media, the Bossier Central Branch’s Awesome Box, or “I would like to recommend” comment cards to recommend books to other patrons
  • Donate school supplies at the library
  • Donate coats at the library in support of Porters coat drive
