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.

Have you been wanting to join a book club but just can’t seem to make the time or gather local interest? BookBrowse can help! BookBrowse offers online book club discussions as well as reading guides and advice for starting a club of your own. To explore this section of BookBrowse select the “Reading Clubs” tab at the top of the homepage.
How the Online Reading Clubs Work: Each month a new book is introduced and an online discussion is opened for BookBrowse members to participate in. These discussions offer readers the option to post from their own homes on a flexible schedule. You only have to participate in discussions you are actually interested in! To participate in one of the many active discussions you can register a screen name and a password for free and get logged in.
Reading Guides: This section is useful for anyone trying to pick the next book for their club. The listed books all have short abstracts and reviews for you to browse through, as well as the publication details. The Reading Guides section even arranges the books by genre to make it easier navigate, giving you an easier way to search for the perfect book.
