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.

In the Digital Library series we will explore the different electronic resources the library provides Beauregard Parish patrons. To use these, you will need a computer or mobile device with internet connection and your library card. For certain services, you will also need to use your electronic services password.
What it is:
Beauregard Parish is excited to offer our patrons this unique product. "Freegal is a downloadable music service... All you need is your library card number and... a PIN. Freegal offers access to about 3 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. In total the collection is comprised of music from over 10,000 labels with music that originates in over 60 countries. There is no software to download, and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Access to Freegal is limited to patrons..."
Each patron with a card in good standing and an electronic services password can log in each week and download as many as three (3) songs to keep. There are so many choices of artists and styles of music that there is something for nearly everyone. Plus, Freegal recently started offering video downloads so you can keep your favorite videos.
