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 about the internet. More specifically dial-up internet. Did you know the library offers free dial-up internet access? This is especially handy for our patrons who may live in a remote community and don't have access to AT&T or cable internet and don't want to pay for satellite. There is absolutely no charge for our dial-up internet service. The only thing you need to supply is your own modem and computer, we give you the rest. We also have handy instructions on how to set up the service available in the library or online.
So if you know someone who may need internet access and does not want to pay an arm and a leg to get it, then let them know about the dial-up internet access provided by the library. Did we mention it was FREE?!
