The DeRidder Branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is now open Monday through Wednesday and Friday between 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM, Thursday between 9:00 AM and 7:30 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Details of our Phase 3 operations can be seen here. We are working on hurricane clean-up and remediation to return service to our rural locations as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.
We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.
The Magnificent Scenery of Ireland [DVD]
The DVD, The Magnificent Scenery of Ireland, truly lives up to its name. The landscapes were absolutely breath-taking. The videographer included captions with the names of the regions of Ireland that were being shown; but not specific tourist sites. Although it was a very relaxing to watch, sixty minutes was a long time without any commentary. A commentary would have been beneficial for those planning a trip to Ireland. Most people will visit places of interest rather than see the entire country. This is something that you may wish to research before visiting.
If The Magnificent Scenery of Ireland interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
