All branches of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library will be closed tomorrow, March 1st, for Mardi Gras, and will reopen on Wednesday, March 2nd, for regular hours. The digital library is always open!
Curious about local Mardi Gras history? Check out the Baton Rouge Digital Archive for more images like the one above! We’ve featured a costume design sketch for the 1983 Bal Masque II Queen of the Mystic Krewe of Apollo. You can find many other images of southern Louisiana parades, balls, and costumes from sources like The Advocate Historical Archives and local krewes.
