Visit https://www.ready.gov/hurricanes for hurricane readiness information.

I have declared a state of emergency today in preparation for the impact of the low-pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico. The system will likely produce storm surge, hurricane-force winds & up to 15 inches of rain across the state. This is going to be a Louisiana event that impacts every part of the state, and no one should take this storm lightly. As we know all too well, low intensity does not necessarily mean low impact. Now is the time to check your emergency supplies and get a gameplan for your family and pets. I urge everyone to continue monitoring local media for weather developments and follow the directions of local officials. We expect multiple parishes to declare states of emergency, and we stand ready to assist our local partners with all available resources. My office is in constant communication with FEMA and we will continue to provide updates as necessary. #lagov #lawx

Robertson Branch

On March 24, 1942, the Robertson Branch of the Rapides Parish Library System opened to service the communities in Tioga, Kingsville, Paradise, Ball, and southern Grant Parish. The library's staff prides itself on providing its communities with a friendly, service-oriented branch. At the Robertson Branch, customers are the staff's first priority, and workers enjoy gathering books and information for the library's patrons.

Established during World War II, the library has a rich history. The branch first opened in the Masonic Building in Tioga. Then in February 1952, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) built a new building in Tioga with special quarters for the library. In May 1982, the library, which was then called the Ward Ten Branch, moved to its present location on Tioga High School Road. The property for the new building was donated by the Rapides Parish School Board. Later in June 1996, the Rapides Parish Police Jury voted to rename the branch the J. L. "Lefty" Robertson Library Branch.

Programs

Summer Reading Program

The branch currently hosts a Summer Reading Program and furnishes Accelerated Reader Books to area schools.
