Library to host blood drive



The Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) will host a LifeShare blood drive Tuesday, May 4 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Patrons will have the chance to help someone battling cancer, enduring sickle cell disease, undergoing surgery, or suffering through a traumatic accident through their donations.

The LifeShare bus will be in the NPL parking lot, and feel free to grab a book beforehand. Any overdue fines, no matter the total amount, will be forgiven with a donation, however, fines resulting from lost or damaged items cannot be waived.

“We are happy to provide an opportunity for our patrons to help the community while wiping out any overdue fines they might have,” said NPL Director, Jessica McGrath.
