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.

Microsoft has just issued two more "critical" software updates for Windows. If you use Windows, go to the Microsoft website to be sure you have all the security updates. The problems are not limited to email distribution, you can be infected just by visiting a website powered by a Microsoft web server. Changing your browser from IE to Netscape, Mozilla or Firefox can help protect against (but not eliminate) your risk. You can check out a CD with copies of the "other" browsers at the library.
