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.

From time to time the library will have trials of new digital products that might be of interest to our patrons. We currently have a trial for three different online genealogy databases: Ancestry Library Edition, Fold3 Library Edition, and Heritage Quest Online. Each of these databases are specialized library editions, designed and created for patrons like you. The trial will end on July 11, 2015, so make sure to check them out if you have an interest in genealogy. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
Here is how you can access the databases:
Click on the tab that says Database Trials, located towards the top of BPL’s Homepage. From there you will be guided to links for each of the three databases. OR you can click on this link.
On Tuesday we will have a post discussing the uses of each of the three databases, so stay tuned!
