As a method of giving back to our communities, the Pointe Coupee Parish Library has collected “Food For Fines” during the months of November and December. This vital community project began in 1993 and has been a tremendous success since its inception. For each overdue library item, patrons are asked to donate a canned food item.
The newest project of the Pointe Coupee Parish Library is the expansion of our Historical Materials Collection.
