But, from Thursday through May 18, the Lincoln Parish Library will serve as the first stop on the North American tour of a brand-new Anne Frank exhibit, designed specifically with schools and libraries in mind.
The local library was able to land this honor by being proactive. Emily Arnold, the library’s programming coordinator, said she called the U.S. Anne Frank Center looking for a traveling exhibit, and was given the opportunity to be the first host of this one.

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

Could it be true?
Is there finally a little bit of light shining at the end of the long, cold and dark tunnel known as Louisiana’s state budget.
Apparently that could be the case.

Davis, OK.jpg

Those three teams were given about as much of a chance of defeating their opponents as the Jacksonville Jaguars were of reaching the Super Bowl last year.
