Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana’s coast on August 29, 2005. The Lower Ninth Ward, the lowest geographical point of Louisiana along the Mississippi River, and located next to the Industrial Canal, was one area that sustained the largest impact of flooding when two levees in the canal broke. The Lower Ninth Ward is known as the childhood home to musician Fats Domino, actor John Larroquette, and author Poppy Z. Brite. It is also home to Carolyn Parker, 59 year old resident and spokesperson for those who lost so much and yet found the strength to retain their dignity and fight for their neighborhood and their homes.
Summer Reading Programs
It’s almost the end of the school year and time to think about what to do with those hours of daylight. The staff of the MUPL has a remedy for the summer time blues. The 2013 Summer Reading Program (SRP) begins Friday, May 31 and goes through early August. This year the library will have five different programs; two for adults, one for teens ages 13 to 18, and two children’s programs for birth through the 5th grade.
