Location & Goals
Eunice Public Library was founded in 1950, in a small building on Avenue J and has moved and grown. In 1958, the library was located in the Community Center until it outgrew its surroundings and had to be moved to our current location on Avenue N in 1980, which houses our current collection of about 23,117 books and media.
