Cattails is the bimonthly newsletter of the Ouachita Parish Public Library. Inside, you will find book recommendations, patron stories, riveting local history and more. The name is drawn from inspiration from our logo, in which cattails rise gracefully from the pages of an open book, indicative of the many creeks, lakes, bayous and the scenic Ouachita River we are so blessed to have flowing through our parish. Pick up Cattails today at your local branch or read it below. If you would like the newsletter mailed to your home or business, email with your name and mailing address.

Cattails is also available in Digital Format. If you would like to receive each new edition of Cattails in your inbox, please fill out our Digital Cattails Form.
