Beginning Wednesday, September 2, the Lafayette Public Library will issue temporary library cards to Louisiana residents from Jefferson Davis Parish, Calcasieu Parish, and Cameron Parish who have been displaced by Hurricane Laura and who are momentarily living in Lafayette Parish.

Access to information and communication is vital in these times, and in order to make library resources easily and immediately available for these individuals, cards will be distributed at all nine Lafayette Public Library locations. The temporary library card will provide all the same benefits of a regular library card including the ability to checkout materials and book study rooms, as well as offering access to WiFi, computers, printers, fax machines, and more.

For more information about how to obtain a temporary library card, visit any of the nine Lafayette Public Library locations in person or call (337) 261-5787.
