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.

If you're looking for newspapers, Beauregard Parish Library has you covered in a variety of ways. Our headquarters in DeRidder hosts current print subscriptions to Beauregard Daily News and Lake Charles American Press. If you need more than that, DeRidder branch has microfilm of past editions of Beauregard Daily News up until 2015.
We also have an electronic subscription to the Lake Charles American Press that gives patrons access to their digital archive. This subscription is available at all branches and restricted to in-house use only, which means interested patrons must access it with Library computers or wifi.
As always, don't hesitate to ask library staff for help if you need assistance for this or any other issue.
