Branch History:
St. Tammany Parish Library's first all electronic branch, The Electronic Resource Center (ERC), opened on June 1, 1999, in the parish's new Department of Health and Hospitals building on Koop Drive in Mandeville. The mission was to increase access to electronic resources via computer and the Internet. An extensive collection of genealogy CD-ROM discs were also acquired. The Electronic Resource Center closed at the Koop Drive location and relocated to the Covington Branch and Library Headquarters where it re-opened on June 26, 2002.
