Looking for something new for a new month? Bored or stressed out? We have you covered!


Check out that mysterious Louisiana Library Databases button. It leads to a page full of things that we get as a service from the State Library of Louisiana, and today's featured resource is listed there!


The Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center is a large collection of articles, videos, and pictures from a wide variety of sources on all types of interesting hobbies and projects! Here, you can learn how to knit and crochet, play Texas Hold'Em Poker, build Model Rockets, develop a discerning collector's eye for those fabulous antiques from the "Antiques Roadshow," and thousands of other skills and pasttimes: it's all fun, all educational, and some may be useful or profitable!

Many of the reference works listed on this site are available as PDF files: free to download and store for later reference or even to upload to your tablet or smartphone!

The Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center is just one of a variety of EBSCO databases available either through the Beauregard Parish Library, or our partnership with the State Library of Louisiana. Keep visiting, keep exploring, and keep learning!
