February 2014

Finally, despite our unusual winter weather (including bouts of ice, sleet, snow, hail, and rain), we have a slab poured and steel is being erected! 

The East Regional Library is located on La Neuville Road, in the Park that is home to Fabacher Field.  The Library will be a one-story 15,200 square foot building and will include a storytelling room, study rooms, adult, teen, and children's book, CD, and DVD collections, public access computers, wi-fi, and two meeting rooms that can be opened into one larger meeting room.

Construction will continue through September 2014.  Furniture, equipment, computers, and library collections will be installed after construction finishes.  We anticipate the library opening by late 2014 or early 2015!

October 2013

One month of construction down, 11 months to go!  That is, if the heavy rains miss our site!  The contractor has been busy in October doing site work, forming up the foundation, and preparing to pour the parking area. 

The Library will be on the same park site as Fabacher Field - just off the intersection of Hwy 89 (or Youngsville Hwy) and La Neuville Rd.  (Albertson Pkwy becomes La Neuville as you cross Hwy 89).

Some have asked where, in relation to the baseball field, will the library be.  It will be on property left of the baseball field.  Here are a few pictures from today.
