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.

We suffered a drive failure Monday evening that RAID couldn't save us from, forcing us to fall back to the last nightly backup. Any mail that arrived Monday and was still in your INBOX is lost forever.
If you use POP3 you kept anything you had already pulled, even if using one of our Lab PCs. IMAP (including our Webmail) probably lost stuff. All of your other folders are kept on a different machine and are intact, only the Inbox was lost.
So if you sent mail to anyone with an @beau.org address yesterday you probably want to look in your sent mail folder for a copy and resend it.
We think all services are now (6AM on March 5) running normally. Please report anything that isn't back up as soon as the phones switch on at 9AM. You should also be able to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
