The Get Down and Clean Up Program by Keep Louisiana Beautiful Empowers Citizens to Clean Up Litter in Their Communities

Lafayette Public Library is proud to join Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KLB) and the State Library of Louisiana as a Get Down and Clean Up<> partner!

Lafayette Public Library is one of 79+ public libraries across the state to help launch this program in Louisiana. Library card holders can visit participating libraries to check out and return litter clclean-upupplies, including litter grabbers, safety vests, and trash bags.

The Get Down and Clean Up program provides citizens an outlet for accessing supplies to improve their communities. People of all ages can participate in this program, but adult supervision (18+ and up) is required.

With their cleanup supplies, participants will be given instructions with a QR code leading to an online reporting form for tracking hours, trash bags collected, and other pertinent statistics.

This program provides the perfect opportunity for students to get service hours for school,§ said Susan Russell, KLB Executive Director. It's also a great hands-on way for families, small homeschool groups, youth groups, and scouts to care for their neighborhood. We encourage you to have fun with it. Play some music and dance your way to a cleaner Louisiana!§

The program at Lafayette Public Library will launch on Monday, October 2, and supplies will be available to check out at the Main and Regional Library locations.

Lafayette Public Library is all about enhancing the quality of life of our community, and what better way to accomplish that than by working together to help create a cleaner and safer city. We are proud to be part of the initiative, and we hope our patrons take advantage of these free resources to help keep Lafayette beautiful,§ said Sarah Monroe, Interim Director of the Lafayette Public Library.

The launch of this program follows Love the Boot Week, Louisiana's largest litter clean up and beautification effort organized by KLB. During Love the Boot Week, 12,777 citizens removed 313 tons of litter.
