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.

If you need to use Consumer Reports to find out more information about a vehicle you want to buy, you can find that in EBSCOhost's MasterFILE Premier.
To find the specific journal you need, click the word "Publications" at the top left corner in your web browser. (It may be in a different location for those using EBSCO's mobile platform.) From that screen users can browse publications by name (i.e. Consumer Reports) or by letter of the alphabet (C). When you find the magazine you want, you can then select the issue to get the full text articles.
Please note that articles from journals in MasterFILE Premiere are downloaded individually instead of as a complete magazine issue.
