As indicated above, the Main Library will close early for Mardi Gras parades and Festival International. All other locations will maintain regular schedules. South and East Regional branches will be closed as necessitated by election dates.

Schedule may be adjusted should event days/times change. As 2024 event calendars are finalized, the Library Director may make adjustments – generally early closings, late openings – as necessitated by community events that may prevent or otherwise impact patron and staff access to the Main Library.

*Approved 2024 LCG holidays (pending).

Adopted by Lafayette Public Library Board of Control at the regular meeting on October 16, 2023.
