At the library we are committed to cultivate a culture of reading in Lafayette, and our services and programs reflect our commitment. Here’s an overview of just some of the literacy building services we offer to the community.
Our staff are happy to make suggestions of great reads, and you can learn what we are reading, by following our blog Books and Beyond.
With your library card you can access Novelist, a database full of read-alikes and other recommended reads for all ages. Go to our research page.
Follow the library on GoodReads, a social network for readers.
Be part of Lafayette READS! It’s a great way to find a good book and meet community members. This community reading group offers quarterly selections and book discussions.
Summer is coming! We will be in our Lafayette community schools this month, distributing information about Summer Reading – so watch your child’s school take-home folder for more information.
Visit us at the library booth on May 12th at Lafayette’s Art Night Out. We’ll have a giant Connect 4, crafts, and other fun surprises for kids and families.
Finally, the Gaea Shaw Homework Center closes for the school year on May 18, but drop in before then for support with finals and end-of-year school projects from our amazing tutors!
