Beauregard Parish Library

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.

Find It Fridays

This week's Find It Friday tip covers how to search by author using the Advanced Search page of the library's online catalog:

Searching by Author: Have a favorite author, but don’t know what else he/she writes? Use this search function when you want to see all items that the library owns by a certain author. The best way to do this is by selecting the author option from the drop down menu of the Advanced Search page and entering the author's last name, followed by the first name. For example: Grisham, John. Even if you don’t know the first name of the author you can search by last name only and the catalog will still search for materials written about or by that individual. However, be aware that when you use this search option it is possible to receive results from many different authors who have the same last name.

Stay tuned next week when we learn to search by subject!
