Schedule may be adjusted should event days/times change. As 2022 event calendars (Mardi Gras, Festival International, etc.) 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 2022 LCG holidays.

Adopted by Library Board of Control at the regular meeting of October 20, 2021.
