’Twas the Night Before Twelfth Night is the name of the Keller Library and Community Center’s Mardi Gras trivia night being held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. There will be king cake and prizes for those who answer Carnival-related trivia questions as the library kicks off the season in a fun and festive way.

IMPROVED HOURS: As a result of the passage of the recent Library Millage Proposition, beginning Jan. 3, the New Orleans Public Library will increase hours of operation by almost 30 percent, with daily service at five locations and six-day-a-week service at eight locations. The library will also increase the size of the collection and its investment in technology.
