Library

East Baton Rouge Parish Library operates the Pride-Chaneyville Branch Library. The library first opened in 1941. It was initially located in the gymnasium of Pride High School. The next location was a temporary building on the grounds of Northeast Elementary School, 782 square feet (72.7 m2) large, where it moved in 1983. It moved into its current location, a 12,086-square-foot (1,122.8 m2) standalone building across from the elementary school and adjacent to Northeast High School, on December 12, 2005. This building was designed by Robert Coleman & Partners Architects, AIA. The branch will reopen in February 2017 due to replacement reasons.
