North Regional Library Survey

Take advantage of the opportunity to offer your thoughts on how our community library can be enhanced – fill out this brief survey.

The Lafayette Public Library System has started on a $4 million  expansion project to add square footage to the North Regional Library, which was opened in 2007 in Carencro. The North Regional Library was the first of the regional libraries built and it is the smallest in square footage at 12,500 sq. ft. The new West Regional Library in Scott by comparison is 17,500 sq. ft. Funds were tight when the regional branch building began, but all locations were built with the idea of expanding as needed in the future. The library system believes the North Regional needs more space.

The goal is to add 6,000 sq. ft. to the building and replace some older mechanical systems. The library system is interested in what the community thinks and has developed a quick survey to prioritize what is most important. Typically, the library system would have community meetings, but with COVID-19 restrictions, this survey will enable library patrons and the public to provide input.
