The Beauregard Parish Library Board of Control will meet in a regularly
called session at 4:45 PM on Monday Aug 3, 2020. This meeting will take
place virtually via the Cisco WebEx platform, as allowed by the Governor’s
executive order JBE 2020-30, in consideration of the social distancing
guidelines in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pursuant to the “Sunshine Laws” (La R.S. 42:14), meetings of this board
are open to the public unless “Executive Session” is noted.

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.

The keys that protect our mail server expired and were regenerated last night. If you send or receive email through us you will probably get security warnings as your mail client notices the key has changed and suspects foul play might be happening. Nope, it has just been ten years since we generated that key. All you should have to do is accept the new one.
We have seen problems today with Thunderbird though, it just fails with a cryptic "Can't send...." message that isn't helpful at all. Go to Edit/Preferences/Advanced/View Certificates and locate all that say mail.beau.org and delete them. Try sending and receiving again and you will be given the opportunity to trust them and to remember the decision.
