A library is not measured by the sum of the books on its shelves, but rather its impact on the community it serves. Modern libraries are places where people gather to explore, interact and imagine. Besides connecting people to information, libraries connect people to other people.
Take your time and enjoy the story—The Livingston Parish Library is now fine free.
In an effort to remove outstanding debt for library patrons, as of December 1, 2019, LPL has eliminated overdue fines on all library-owned items currently in circulation; removing barriers to basic library services and resources.
More than books
Connecting you on the go:
Patrons can now enjoy unlimited access to the internet on-the-go, anywhere, anytime when they check out a mobile hotspot from the library. Mobile hotspots from the library provide internet access to smartphones, tablets, computers, and other wireless-enabled devices through the Verizon cellular data network. This is a terrific idea for road trips—keeping the back-seat devices streaming entertainment.

Read all about it: The Livingston Parish Library has partnered with Livingston Parish Public Schools (LPPS) to provide all Livingston Parish students and teachers with immediate access to the library’s digital resources and services through its new eCard program.
The new eCard grants students and teachers access to all eResources provided by the Library, ranging from Scholastic databases offering assistance to homework to resources offering downloadable eBooks, audiobooks and magazines. Additionally, students and teachers can visit their local branch to convert their eCard into a full-fledged library card that will allow them to check out physical items such as books, DVDs, video games, Learning Kits, and more.
