Our Communities

The community which our library serves includes the Towns of Sunset and Grand Coteau, the Village of Cankton and the community of Bristol, all located in Ward 2, the southernmost political subdivision of St. Landry Parish, near the center of the Acadiana Region of Southwest Louisiana. The economy of our rural community is largely based on agriculture. It has always been an area of relatively small farms, first engaged in the production of cotton and sweet potatoes, now growing mostly corn and soy beans. Major tourist attractions in our area include Chretien Point, an antebellum plantation house, The Academy of the Sacred Heart, a school for girls founded in 1821, and LaCaboose, a unique Bed and Breakfast and jelly-making facility.
