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.

Did you upgrade or get your first tablet over this holiday season? If so, here at BPL we hope that you will take advantage of the Overdrive e-book platform! Overdrive has thousands of e-books and audio books available for you to check out and read on a tablet or mobile device. The next few Find it Fridays will cover using the help feature and the tutorials located on the Overdrive website.
How to Get to the Help Pages:
From the Overdrive homepage you will see a question mark icon labeled help on the right-hand side of the page. If you are using the Overdrive App the question mark will still be on the homepage, it just won’t say “help” under the icon. The help feature includes: OverDrive Help where you can watch videos and find FAQ’s, the Library Lending Policies, information about Recommending Titles to your Library, and contacting Customer Support. So take a few minutes to look around and make sure to catch next week’s Find it Friday when we go in depth into the features of Overdrive Help.
