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.

We suffered a hard drive failure yesterday (the 10th) around noon. While the RAID array was rebuilding from that, a second drive failed. That isn't recoverable so we were forced to reload from our last backup. Email in your inbox from the last forty-eight hours or so is likely lost so if you were expecting anything important you need to ask to the sender to fire off a second copy.
At 7:15am everything looks like it is running again, but if you see anything unusual be sure to let us know so we can fix it.
