The DeRidder Branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is now open Monday through Wednesday and Friday between 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM, Thursday between 9:00 AM and 7:30 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Details of our Phase 3 operations can be seen here. We are working on hurricane clean-up and remediation to return service to our rural locations as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
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:
OverDrive is a digital library shared with several other public libraries in southwest Louisiana to bring you a wide variety of content. It contains ebooks, audiobooks, music and video that patrons can check out for free.
To access it, click on the OverDrive (ebooks) button at left, or direct your browser to lsw.lib.overdrive.com.
What you need to use it:
Generally, users need to install OverDrive Media Console and Adobe Digital Editions to use OverDrive. There are some exceptions depending on the specific devices a patron has. For more information on software, click here. Once the software is installed, using OverDrive is fairly easy.
