LSU Students to Host Special Family Night at Carver Branch Library

BATON ROUGE – LSU students will be serving the Old South Baton Rouge Community at “Around the World in Family Games: An International Family Fun Night,” to be held at the Carver Branch Library at 720 Terrace Street on Monday, Nov. 26, from 6 – 8 p.m. Families of all ages will join in an assortment of fun games from around the country and the globe. While adults, teens and older children challenge each other in friendly competition, preschool children will be treated to a special game-themed story time with crafts in the Storytime Room. Refreshments will be served in the meeting room at 7:30 p.m.

The LSU School of Library & Information Science is focusing on the growing importance of multicultural populations’ needs from libraries and librarians in a new service-learning course, Media Services for Multicultural Populations.

Assistant Professor Robin Kurz and graduate students are working with the Carver Branch Library. Historically, this library branch has served a large African-American population, but has seen growth in international patrons. The service-learning project focuses on better serving these populations and fostering a multi-generational library program based on the rich oral traditions which thrive in the larger community.
