The East Baton Rouge Parish Library is closing at 4pm on Saturday, August 30 and will remain closed on Sunday, August 31. The library is closed for the Labor Day holiday on Monday, September 1 and will remain closed on Tuesday, September 2 UNLESS Hurricane Gustav changes course and leaves the Baton Rouge area untouched. Stay tuned to local news outlets for more information about library closures.
It seems like a good time to remind everybody about the East Baton Rouge Parish Library Hurricane Hotline, which is chock-full of hurricane information. And while we’re still open, don’t forget the Library Information Service at (225) 231-3750. We’ve been answering questions about the hurricanes and emergency preparedness all week.
The State Library of Louisiana has also set up hurricane and emergency assistance website at http://prepare.lib.la.us/ . Furthermore, a blog has been set up to keep track of the status of Louisiana Libraries, whether they are closed or open, or if any branches are damaged. It is the Louisiana Library Status Blog.
