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.

This weeks tech tip will be a short how-to on connecting your laptop to our free wifi. Now if you have a laptop (or tablet, smartphone, etc.) your device should automagically see our access point called "BPL DeRidder" (or "BPL Name Of Branch"). When you open a web browser there is one more thing you need to do. You will need to navigate to our homepage (which you are reading this on!) and look for "wifi login" in the top righthand corner.
Upon clicking on this link you will be taken to a login screen asking for your username and password. If you are logging in as a guest you will need to select guest login. Then just input your username and password. If they match you will see the message "MCP Access Granted" and you can browse to your hearts content!
Happy browsing faithful readers!
