The South Beauregard branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is closed today Saturday, August 1, 2020 because of bad weather; we apologize for the inconvenience.
The Beauregard Parish Library Board of Control will meet in a regularly called session at 4:45 PM on Monday Aug 3, 2020. This meeting will take place virtually via the Cisco WebEx platform, as allowed by the Governor’s executive order JBE 2020-30, in consideration of the social distancing guidelines in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Pursuant to the “Sunshine Laws” (La R.S. 42:14), meetings of this board are open to the public unless “Executive Session” is noted.

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 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.

The 1970’s: Pet rocks (mine’s name was Albert), Weebles that wobble (but they don’t fall down), and the Happy Face. Nostalgic for the 70’s or would you simply like to explore some music from a decade you have never seen or heard? Well, Freegal has plenty of free music from the 70’s from light pop to some music that will mellow you out.
