Beauregard Parish Library

Knowledge, Growth, Imagination

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.

Lab Upgrade

Rollout of new software in labs

New software should be on all lab PCs starting today. Besides the usual bug fixes involved in upgrading to CENTOS 6.5 there are two notable new version upgrades:

  • Firefox 25
    This update gets the very latest browser deployed. Be sure to let us know if anything breaks.
  • LibreOffice 4.0
    This is a major version upgrade from the previous 3.4 version. This version should do a noticably better job of opening documents imported from other systems, especially docx files from Office 2013. Import filters now include Microsoft Visio and Publisher.
