LIVINGSTON –In the aftermath of the “Great Flood” of August 2016, Livingston Parish Library opened the doors of its locations as soon as parish roads were passable in order to serve those of our parish impacted by the horrific flood waters.

The staff continues to help struggling residents with submitting and scanning paperwork, finding resources on home repair, and many more tasks that come with rebuilding a community devastated by disaster.

Now, Livingston Parish Library needs the help of parish residents.

If you or anyone in your family were impacted by flooding and had any library materials checked out as of August 12, 2016, or earlier, please let any branch of the Livingston Parish Library know.

Because of the widespread damage caused by flood waters, the library will waive all charges associated with reported flooded materials from homeowner accounts.

Any library branch can help cardholders in starting this process.

“It is the purpose of a library system to be there for its community in times of need,” Library Director Giovanni Tairov said.

“We want to let all library patrons know that there is a policy in place to cover their materials in cases of Acts of Nature. No instance of flooding damage or loss should prevent a person from using the library’s services.”
