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.

For this short article series, we’ll fill you in on mobile apps for your tablet or smartphone that you can use to access library resources. Please note two things:
Our first Library App is already familiar to many users: OverDrive
This is the platform for our digital library that has e-books, e-audiobooks, and videos. Each card-holder can check out 10 items at a time. Card holders may also request items, put items on hold and make wishlists. This is free, and there are never any late charges for overdues. OverDrive checkouts never get in the way of checkouts from our physical library.
For those who want to try it out, OverDrive makes it easy to download the right app for you. Click the link for more: Get Help With OverDrive Apps
