1362

Bossier Parish Libraries is excited to participate in the very first Ralph & Kacoo’s Family Night. Sponsored by our good friend MacaroniKid.com the event will kick-off Monday, October 7 from 5:30-7:30p.m., at 1700 Old Minden Road in Bossier City. There will be games and other activities for the kids along with giveaways from local businesses.

Ralph & Kacoo’s is offering a special perk for this occasion. With the purchase of one adult meal you can get two children’s meals for 99 cents, per table. Parents can enjoy a great meal and save a little money too.

Family Night will take place on the first Monday of every month. For more information about this event contact Pamela Kennedy at pamelak@macaronikid.com or go to her online newsletter at shreveport.macaronikid.com. You can also reach me at vhardin@bossierlibrary.org. I look forward to seeing you there.
