Message From the Director

As 2014 comes to a close, many of us pause for reflection – where we’ve been, where we’re hoping to go, and how we plan to reach those goals. For West Baton Rouge Parish Library, 2014 has been a banner year! We are so grateful that the Library Renewal passed with 65% of the voters supporting our funding, keeping the Library operating for the next ten years. The “digital shift” has allowed us to provide a variety of new resources for the people of the Parish, many accessible through this website from any Internet-accessible device. We continue to offer the best of traditional books and audiovisual items while also branching out with electronic books and audiobooks for downloading, research databases, online training, children’s websites, and teen resources. Our next milestone will be the unveiling of video conferencing capabilities in our meeting room early in the new year! We are excited to bring this new service to you! From all of us here at West Baton Rouge Parish Library, Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for a Fabulous 2015!

Beth Vandersteen, Director
