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.

With Staff Picks, we would like to offer recommendations from our staff to you. These picks will be from a variety of reading, listening or viewing tastes. You might find stuff you've checked out before, or you might be intrigued enough to find a new favorite. This time our staff pick is a digital magazine that we have available through Zinio
Cook's Country [digital magazine]
Cook's Country is a magazine put out by the people behind the PBS show America's Test Kitchen. This magazine not only tells you the complete ingredients in a recipe but why the ingredients are there and why you mix them in a certain order or even why a certain technique is used. It takes cooking from a mysterious art form to a science that you can understand and therefore replicate.
They also test different methods and ingredients for the same recipe so that you don't have to experiment and experience disasters. They also give you tips, tricks, and ingredient substitutions.
It's full color and add-free!
