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.

Need to do some work at home but don't have a computer, or your computer is down? The Library has laptops for check out!
The BTOP laptops are laptops with Windows 7, Microsoft Office, and a few other programs. They can be checked out at any of our branches. They have wifi built in, so you can connect to your router at home if you have one.
However, to keep our patrons safe from viruses, the laptops completely reset themselves after being shut down. So if you need to keep copies of anything, you'll need to plug in a USB key and save your work there. (If you need a USB key, we sell them!) The BTOP laptops only check out for a week, and you have to wait a week before you can check them out again. Still, they're a great resource when you need to do a little work!
