Eunice Library opens a new chapter

Morris Pickney of Eunice was reading a newspaper at the Eunice Library on Thursday.
Also in the room was Ken Waldman, a touring artist based in Alaska, catching up on his email and working on a project.
Pickney said visiting the library to catch up on the news is a routine for him.
Waldman, who was staying at Lakeview Park for the Blackpot Festival in Lafayette, said libraries are great for a traveling artist, but he was especially appreciative of the Eunice Library’s 8 a.m. opening time.
