Ascension Parish Library is not only a library of books, but also of things and experiences. Try a new craft, strum a ukulele, plan a family board game night, or go on a birding walk by using your library card.

How to Check Out Things

Most Library of Things items can be placed on hold in the library catalog with an active APL card and picked up at a library location.

Adventure Passes can be reserved online through our ticketing system. Call one of our locations for assistance.

The Dobsonian Telescope can only be checked out and returned at our Gonzales location.

How to Return Materials

Library of Things materials must be returned to the checkout desk at any library location (unless otherwise specified at checkout) during regular operation hours. To avoid damages, please do not return items to our book drops.

Borrower Responsibility

Library cardholders ages 14 and up can borrow up to two Things at a time for a period of two weeks. Borrowers accept responsibility for the return of all parts included with Things. While fines may not be charged for minor damages and loss of some parts, the library reserves the right to charge for replacement parts if deemed necessary. Borrowers will be charged for items that are not returned.
