The City of Sulphur is celebrating 100 years! The Sulphur Regional Library is also celebrating with numerous programs. 

On Jan. 24th and Feb. 21st at 10a, all are encouraged to join us for Coffee and History. Bring old photos, memories and stories as we remember Sulphur's past and look forward to the City's future. 

On March 10th at 3:15p, teens will create a time capsule. You may bring small trinkets to add to your capsule. There will be lively competition in the form of a trivia game on Sulphur history so brush up on all things Sulphur--past and present. 

"The City of Sulphur, Louisiana, named for the chemical and mining industry that helped establish Calcasieu Parish in the late 1800's, is the 13th largest city in 
Louisiana with a population of nearly 21,000. Sulphur, Louisiana is referred to as "the pride of Southwest Louisiana", drawing that slogan from citizens who take pride in their heritage, as well as the future of 
Sulphur. Click here for the History of Sulphur."
