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.

Beginning Monday, December 5, BPL will have HotSpots available for checkout so you can take our WiFi home with you for a week.
A HotSpot is a device about the size of a deck of cards that uses T-Mobile's data network to provide unlimited wireless internet access for up to 5 devices at a time. While we cannot guarantee coverage everywhere in the parish, our tests show that most of the parish is covered by our provider's network.
Give the HotSpot a shot and, if it works in your home, use the free WiFi connectivity to prepare for important presentations or homework assignments, apply for jobs online, or just to enjoy online entertainment. Or, if you're taking the camper for a long-weekend trip or traveling for work, why not see if you can bring free internet access with you?
Supplies are limited as we test this new service and they are provided on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please be patient. Adults who have had their card 6 months or longer and have an account in good standing are welcome to checkout a HotSpot (one per household) for a week at a time. For more details, call us at 337-463-6217 or 800-524-6239 within Beauregard Parish or drop by your nearest Beauregard Parish Library branch.
