Behind her is a zen courtyard featuring a statue donated by Philip and Bonnie Hollier that is an expression of support for the library. (Gazette photo by Tony Marks)
The Acadiana area is known for authors and artists who create colorful pieces of art. Each year the Evangeline Parish Library showcases this art at its Book Fest which takes place at the main branch in Ville Platte.
