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.

Windows users are reporting a virus which is changing the settings that the dialup connection software uses to dial the Internet. Instead of dialing the free or low cost connection, the computer dials a premium connection. Most people are unaware that they have this virus until they get the phone bill.
Once again, we want to caution you against using Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. We have prepared an Internet cd which has alternative browsers such as Mozilla and Netscape which you can load on your Windows computer. Use of some other browser and mail client will help protect your computer from many of the most damaging virus attacks. Please ask to check out a copy at any branch of the library. If all copies are in use, they will take a request and call you as soon as one is available.
