- This week in Louisiana history. January 18, 1838. Caddo Parish created from Natchitoches District, named for Caddo Indians.
- This week in New Orleans history. The New Orleans Public
Library first opened its doors to the public on January 18,
1897. The system began in 1896 as the Fisk Free and
Public Library in a building on Lafayette Square. Abijah Fisk
was a merchant who, over fifty years earlier, had left his
house—at the corner of Iberville and Bourbon Streets—to the
city for use as a library. Subsequent donations had resulted
in libraries and collections not completely free and open to
the citizenry. An 1896 city ordinance proposed by Mayor John
Fitzpatrick combined the Fisk collection with a newer
municipal library. It eventually became known as the New
Orleans Public Library.
