A Culture of Reading

At the library we are committed to cultivate a culture of reading in Lafayette, and our services and programs reflect our commitment. Here’s an overview of just some of the literacy building services we offer to the community.

  • Our staff are happy to make suggestions of great reads, and you can learn what we are reading, by following our blog Books and Beyond.
  • With your library card you can access Novelist, a database full of read-alikes and other recommended reads for all ages. Go to our research page
  • Follow the library on GoodReads, a social network for readers.
  • Be part of Lafayette READS! It’s a great way to find a good book and meet community members. This community reading group offers quarterly selections and book discussions.
  • Summer is coming! We will be in our Lafayette community schools this month, distributing information about Summer Reading – so watch your child’s school take-home folder for more information. 
  • Visit us at the library booth on May 12th at Lafayette’s Art Night Out. We’ll have a giant Connect 4, crafts, and other fun surprises for kids and families.
  • Finally, the Gaea Shaw Homework Center closes for the school year on May 18, but drop in before then for support with finals and end-of-year school projects from our amazing tutors!
