Beauregard Parish Library

Knowledge, Growth, Imagination

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.

Find It Friday-The Hamburger Menu

More and more, on major websites such as CNN and Slate, and in some programs such as Firefox, users are starting to see something they might have become familiar with from their smartphones and tablets.

This is the famous, or maybe infamous, "Hamburger Menu". It started out on phones and tablets as a way to keep the settings menu for apps from taking up extra space on the screen - and not even needing the word "Settings" to indicate where to click. The design takes off on the normal look of a drop down menu, with lines of text making neat rows. Eventually, most of the functions that would normally be in a menu in a regular application started hiding under there.

From there, many websites, rather than maintain a special "mobile device" version of their website, added the "Hamburger Menu" to their regular website to help you navigate to different sections.

Some love them, some hate them. But until a new design fad takes over, most everyone is going to have to live with them. Enjoy your hamburger!
