DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) — The Denham Springs-Walker library will be partially closed due to remodeling.

According to Livingston Parish Library Director Michelle Parrish, beginning Monday, Nov. 20, the south half of the Denham Springs-Walker branch library will be partially closed to replace the carpet and moisture mitigation.

The south half is the side facing Florida Boulevard and includes the front circulation desk, reading areas and a glass hallway that leads to the computer lab. The remaining half of the building will operate under normal hours.

It is expected to be fully reopened by January.

“We understand that this partial closure will be an inconvenience for many of our patrons who depend on our libraries, and that is why we made sure we could keep half of the branch open,” said Parrish. “But please know that this capital outlay project is necessary to prevent greater, more expensive issues — and therefore, longer closures — down the road.”

Some staff members will stay at the Denham Springs-Walker library while others will be sent to the system’s other branches, according to Parrish.

“Additionally, patrons can visit any of our other four branches, which will be unaffected by this project, and our digital catalog, which remains available at,” said Parrish. “As always, we greatly appreciate the community’s patience and willingness to work with us.”
