Adult Summer Reading Program

“Literary Elements” is the theme of Cameron Parish Library’s 2014 Adult Summer Reading Program combining science and literature in a variety of programs sure to pique your interest. Come to a stargazing night, learn the science behind Star Trek, or discover the Golden Ratio. Read some of today’s best science writing, learn to write your own science fiction tale, and enjoy a series of science fiction films.

All programs are free of charge. Attending programs and turning in reading logs earns you a chance to win a free tablet computer. Registration begins on June 1st. For more information, call the library at 337-775-5421 and follow us on Facebook for more information.

Whether you consider yourself a senior citizen, elderly, young at heart, or just well seasoned, that doesn’t mean that you have to spend your retirement, and possibly the best years of your life, knitting or fishing. You could check out these terrific resources. The branches of the Cameron Parish Library can provide information on just about any topic you’d like. Many offer programs specifically for seniors, and all are open to new ideas.
