Book Purchases - We provide funds for the purchase of books and to supplement the Branch's annual book budget.

Speaker programs - We present authors and speakers of interest to the community on a regular basis.
Musical programs - We host occasional music programs such as a program on the patio outside the library’s community room where people danced to very lively Louisiana music performed by Bonne Musique Zydeco.
Book sales - Book sales are held several times a year.
