Staff Report
The Ascension Parish Library in Donaldsonville will be closed temporarily for renovations.

The Donaldsonville location of the Ascension Parish Library will be closed Nov. 8 to Nov. 20 as renovation of the branch begins.

The library will move to a temporary location at 420 Mississippi St., Donaldsonville, which is a block away.
