Natchitoches Parish Library

The Natchitoches Parish Library is a local facility which offers public access to research databases, computers, printing and copying services, Internet, and meeting spaces. Please contact the library directly for specific information about the facility.


The library provides equitable access to information, experiences, and community space. That’s what we’re about. We are proud to be centered in the heart of Natchitoches but also anticipate the library “branching out,” in the parish. Reignite your passion for the library – you never know what you might discover!
