Louisiana Center For The Book

The Louisiana Center for the Book was established in the State Library of Louisiana in 1994 for the purpose of stimulating public interest in reading, books, and libraries.  It is the official state affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The Center works to accomplish its mission in three ways: by developing, sponsoring, and coordinating statewide reading enrichment programs for children; by identifying and nurturing the objectives of Louisiana’s writers, publishers, and others involved in the creation and promotion of books; and by encouraging Louisianans to read by presenting or sponsoring public presentations by accomplished authors, thus enabling the public to interact with living authors, particularly at the Louisiana Book Festival and annual programs such as Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and National Poetry Month events.
