Classes will be held each Thursday from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at the La Porte Fire Training Facility.

CERT training is a Federal Emergency Management Agency program that educates citizens in basic disaster skills. These citizen-responders work as part of a neighborhood or workplace team to assist as needed in a disaster when first responders are overwhelmed or not immediately available.

Training sessions cover disaster preparedness, fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, and team organization. Pre-registration is required for this class.

A certain green person greeted the storytime children on Tuesday, December 20. Yes, that's right the Grinch made his annual visit to La Porte. Luckily he never tries to take our tree or the ornaments but instead hands out cookies and hugs. I guess his heart did "grow three sizes that day."


Join the La Porte Library Puppet Committee for their Christmas spectacular puppet show. It all kicks off Wednesday, December 14 at 4:00 pm. It will get you in the mood for Christmas vacation.
