During Phase 2, the Beauregard Parish Library is open with limited hours and limited services. Additional details can be seen here. Within those limitations, further closures may become necessary on short notice due to staff shortages. We will update our social media accounts in those instances. Patrons are also welcome to call 337-463-6217 x 0 during the DeRidder branch's open hours for the most recent updates on branch openings. Computer use is limited and by appointment only. Patrons can schedule appointments online here or by calling 337-463-6217 or in-person by asking a library clerk. Appointments are set at 45-minute intervals. No consecutive appointments for 1 person.

E-Mail Virus Warning Another virus warning has been issued for those of you who are still using Outlook Express for E-Mail. Like the last 100 or so, this E-Mail uses the Windows built in Visual Basic program to automatically launch a program to do things to your computer. This one automatically opens your address book and sends itself to everyone whose address is in there. When it gets to them, it opens a web site which is pornographic. We know that many of you are using Outlook Express because we see network signs that the many variations of this virus are being passed between your computers. Some of these viruses can cause serious damage to your computer as well as sending objectionable messages to everyone you know. If you are using Outlook Express for E-Mail you really, really need to change to another mail package. The subject line that is reported with this email is "Home Page" - that does not really matter though because the same virus could be sent out under a different subject heading.
