Judy Copeland, the president of the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, was present to talk with the board about hosting the chamber’s annual Gun and Knife show in the Library Events Center.

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

My first love has been and always will be history. From an early age I was fascinated with tales of yester-year. It never really mattered to me whether it was focused on the United States, Europe, Ancient Greece or if the tales were from a specific area such as military history or art history.
It all fascinated. Well residents will have a chance to share in my amazement come the first week of April when the Lincoln Parish Library begins to house an exhibit on Anne Frank.
Our library will be the first place in North America to showcase this magnificent exhibit.
