Shreveport's newest celebration of the printed word, the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, Centenary Blvd at Atkins St.

"The new Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum is located at Centenary Blvd. & Atkins St.," writes Kathy Pliler, S'pt Karpeles director. "This is the former home of the Christian Science Church. We had our Grand Opening in August 2005, right before Katrina hit, so we've gotten off to a slow start. With that behind us, we're looking forward to 2006. Many people over the years have passed by here and wondered what it looks like inside. Now that curiousity can be satisfied!"

"You can check us out at www.karples.com; in the lower right hand corner, click on Shreveport. We are part of the national website and hope to have more local information in the future."

"Would love for you to come by and check us out -- Admission is FREE! Also, spread the word to teachers that we're available for field trips."

"Also, every month we will have a different visual artist exhibited. An art reception will be held the 1st Saturday of every month from 1-3 p.m. -- except for January. The Reception will be held on January 14th and the artist is 'Aerial.' More on this soon," promises the informative and ebullient Mrs. Pliler.

Chat with her at 318-861-7615.
