St. Tammany Library Foundation launches fundraising drive for walkway, patio at new branch

Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne will speak to the St. Tammany Library Association at a dinner Saturday at Keith Young’s Steak House in Madisonville.

The event will launch the St. Tammany Library Foundation’s drive to sell engraved paving stones for the pathway to the new St. Tammany library being built in Madisonville and for a memorial patio on the side of the library dedicated to St. Tammany’s eminent writer, the late Walker Percy. A reading room in the library will also be dedicated to Percy and house a collection of works by and about the author.

To attend the dinner or for additional information, contact the Secretary of the St. Tammany Library Foundation, Ann Shaw, at shaw6017@bellsouth.net or Argiro Morgan, at argiro@bellsouth.net.
