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

Are you looking forward to endless leftovers and curling up with a good book for the rest of the weekend? The library may be closed but don’t worry, you still have access to thousands of books! You can access Overdrive from the comfort of your own home.

Using the Advanced Search in Overdrive: The Advanced Search gives you the option to narrow down the results field and find exactly the type of e-book you are looking for. To use the Advanced Search click the link located in the upper righthand corner of the Overdrive homepage, directly under the Search box.

Unique Searching Options:

1. Reading Levels: Patrons can search by reading level, which can come in handy for children looking for books at their specific grade level.

2. Awards: This filter allows you to search for books that have won specific awards. Say you need to read a Newberry Medal book for school, this option will show you all the available books that have won that award. Or, what if you want to read one of the most popular books from 2013, this filter gives you the option to select the top ten books from years dating back to 1997.

3. Availablility: If you scroll to the very bottom of the Advanced Search page you will see the option to check the box for "Available Now." This feature will only show you the results for items that are currently available for checkout. No need to wait!
