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 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.

Now that we have entered the week of Christmas, everyone is starting to turn their attention to wondering what presents they could be getting and, of course, the guy who delivers the presents, Santa Claus. For our patrons who want to be in the know, here is some info about a couple of websites that will let you follow along with Santa on his Christmas Eve journey.
The first is the classic NORAD Santa Tracker located here. This year NORAD have teamed up with Microsoft to make tracking Santa even more fun! Check out some of their games and features while you follow Santa's worldwide trek.
Also, this year Google has added some whimsy to tracking Santa. You can find their Santa tracker here. Google has tried to make tracking Old Saint Nick as fun and kid friendly as possible (and done a pretty good job in our opinion).
So if you're looking for a fun way to spend Christmas Eve (and track Santa right past your front door), then check out one of these trackers. And have a merry Christmas!!
