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 a suggestion for something sinister to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an eye-widening ebook or fiendish audiobook? Try some of our Spooktacular Staff Picks during the month of October to find what some of the other ghouls 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 Skeleton Key [DVD]
Not everything is as it seems on the bayou. That is what Caroline finds out when she goes to work caring for Ben, an elderly man who has, according to his wife, suffered a stroke. Given a skeleton key of the large house they inhabit, Caroline discovers a room filled with the markings of hoodoo. Violet, Ben's seemingly distant wife, claims the items must've been left by previous occupants, but Caroline is not convinced. Watch "The Skeleton Key" to join her as she embarks on a treacherous journey of discovery that could be her own undoing.
If The Skeleton Key interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different spooktacular Staff Pick.
