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.

In the menu of choices at left between Calendar of Events and Request Meeting Room use is a button that reads My Account. It can be confusing when there are many accounts in different places all over the internet, but what does that mean to you as a Beauregard Parish Library patron?
You can use My Account to log into your personal library account and see what items are checked out, what items might be on hold, if you owe fines, etc. Unfortunately, you can't pay your fines online yet, but we have a few other useful things you can do with My Account.
You can make hold requests for items that are in the catalog. If you're looking for the latest blockbuster DVD release, you can put your own hold and even tell us where you want to pick it up.
You can renew your items if you're not done using them. Items can only be renewed one time, and they won't automatically renew if there is another Patron's request on them (example: blockbuster DVDs). Otherwise, renewals work just fine through My Account.
If you want to use My Account, you must have an electronic services username and password from Beauregard Parish Library. You can apply for that in person at the public services desk of any of our branches. Make sure to bring your current picture ID with you. Once you have that, you can log into your account with either your new user name OR your library card number and then your secret password. Happy account management!
