St. Tammany Parish Library October Events Updates


COVINGTON- The St. Tammany Parish Library will return to in-person events in several branches beginning October 1. Some programming will remain virtual, and some will remain a hybrid — in-person with a virtual option. All programming will be re-evaluated for the month of November.

Children’s Programming


School-aged programming will be a combination of virtual and in-person programming. Storytime Inside will take place at our six small branches — Abita Springs, Bush, Folsom, Lacombe, Lee Road, and Peral River, as well as two registered in-person Storytimes at the Slidell Branch.  The remaining Storytime events will take place outside at the following locations: Covington Trailhead, Mandeville Trailhead, and the Madisonville Branch in the Walker Percy Serenity Circle. In addition, select branches will have drop-in and passive programming for children. The virtual Storytime and Music and Movement programs will continue.
