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 Newsboys started in Australia and now have a lead singer Michael Tait who used to be with the famous DC Talk ( who I heard in college when they opened for Stephen Curtis Chapman). Freegal, the free and legal website that gives you five free downloads weekly and three free hours daily of commercial-free streaming music has the latest 2016 album from the Newsboys called Love Riot. In it are anthem-like songs such as “Crazy”, “Hero", and “You Hold It All”. There is also the danceable “Earthquake”. Or songs with building power like “No Longer Slaves” and “Family of God” which builds to a powerful children’s chorus. Or the driving rhythm of “Committed”.
