2017 Mardi Gras Break

2017 Mardi Gras has come and gone.

Even though Monroe Library is closed Saturday February 25th through Wednesday March 1st in celebration of Mardi Gras, that doesn’t mean you can’t do some learning about Fat Tuesday right here on our website.  Check out the links below to see some past blog posts about the colorful history of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. The library will re-open Thursday March 2nd and Friday March 3rd from 8am-6pm, and resume regular hours Saturday March 4th. We hope you have a wonderful and safe Mardi Gras season!
