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.

Summer Car Care

Whether you drive a car, truck or SUV, it's always important to keep your vehicle in good working condition. The library has free resources to help you save time, money and avoid accidents of the automotive nature. Here are a few you can use at home and on the go.

Chilton Library Chilton Online Auto Repair Manuals brings everything that Chilton's is known for and puts it in easy reach 24/7. The Gale mobile app (iTunes or Google Play) makes it even easier to use whenever and wherever you need it.

Popular features include:

  • Maintenance and specification tables that provide the unique data you need for each specific vehicle
  • Step-by-step service and repair procedures supported by close-up graphics which give you the ability to determine your next move with expertise and confidence
  • Vacuum diagrams to simplify troubleshooting
  • Wiring diagrams to help explain system operation
  • Close-up photographs and illustrations for visual support
  • A print button which allows you to easily print out what is needed

EBSCOhost

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.

ZINIO MAGAZINES

We have currently have subscriptions to 4 Wheel Drive and Car and Driver magazines that are available for free through Zinio 24/7. These magazines are full and complete issues. They can be viewed online or downloaded to a mobile device. Once you have checked them out, they are yours to keep forever. Back issues to the beginning of our subscription period (January 2014) are also available.
