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.

Just in time for National Library Week, the Merryville branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is getting its own set of Launchpads. Launchpads are the educational tablets from Findaway World. They come with ten different learning apps each so your child can enjoy learning, and there are many different topics to explore.
Grown ups, you don’t need wifi or internet to use the apps on the launchpads! You can take it with you on the go. We even supply a charger so your launchpad has enough get up and go to satisfy any curious mind.
We have launchpads for four age groups (3-5, 5-7, 8-10, 10+). The boxes tell you what the topic of the launchpad is, what apps are on the device, and the recommended age group for the child.
These are the launchpad titles you’ll see at Merryville branch:
Please note: Only one launchpad checkout at one time per card. The library does not recharge the launchpads between patron uses.
Launchpads are ready for take-off today at the Merryville branch!
