Funeral Programs

In an effort to help preserve the history of Vernon Parish, and honor those who have lived here and contributed to our history, we are now collecting Funeral Programs. These are housed in the Library's Archives. They are indexed in our online catalog. You may search by name, or search Funeral Programs to find a complete list of names. This collection is added to monthly. Currently over 150 programs are in the collection.

New Program, Online Book Clubs are now available!

Online Book Clubs are here!
All you need is 5-minutes a day and an e-mail address to join one of our FREE online book clubs!
Vernon Parish Library delivers portions of books to you in your e-mail. Each day, Monday through Friday, the library e-mails subscribers to this free service, a portion of a book that takes about 5-minutes to read. By the end of the week, subscribers have read two to three chapters from the book and if they like it, they check it out from the library. At the end of Friday’s read, the ending page number is given so when you pick up the book from the library, you know where you left off. New books are featured every week.

There are 11 book clubs to choose from. Something for every age and taste: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Good News, Horror, Business, Teen, and Audio Books (that you listen to in your e-mail) and a special sneak preview Pre-Pub Club that lets you start reading books that aren’t even published yet.

This new service makes it easy for people to get back into the habit of reading. It’s fun, and only takes 5-minutes-a-day and the first few chapters are delivered to you in your e-mail.
You can sign up for the service at the library or at our website, Click on the "Online Book Clubs" icon.
Please let us know how you like this new program.
