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.

You're looking for that book that just came out a couple of months ago. Our card catalog computer says we have it, and that it's available for checkout at the DeRidder branch. You search the shelves top to bottom, but it's just not there!
Well, it's probably up in our New Books shelves, off to the side of the circulation desk. New books that the Library acquires are put there for 2-6 months, depending on the collection they belong in. They're also a nice place to just see what has shown up lately. Perhaps there's a new book by an author you adore that you didn't hear about!
Of course, you don't want to spend all of your time in the New Books shelves. There's a lot of hidden and forgotten gems in the regular stacks, just waiting to be discovered. You can find out about some of them from our Staff Picks, on this same blog.
