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 this third installment about requesting material from the library, we turn to the "Request an Item" button on the left side of the library's website.
This button leads to a form that lets you ask for just about anything you can dream of, even if you don't know exactly what it is. You can ask for a specific book, a magazine or just an article out of a magazine, or general information on a topic, whether its because something you're interested in, or if it's for a school project such as a science fair or research paper.
The value of this form is that it harnesses the power of the librarians and their research skills, as well as allowing for such things as the library purchasing copies of materials if enough people are interested in it, or the library getting copies via the InterLibrary Loan program. This means many more things are available than the library itself can hold.
And that is the last of the three ways you can request books online here on the library website. Enjoy using them to get what you need!
