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.

It might have been a while since you've visited Universal Class. It's the free self-education module brought to you by Beauregard Parish Library. If you have a library card with us, you can register an account and take as many as five simultaneous courses. You have a choice of over 500 different courses to help you from hobbies, computer basics, professional skills, and so much more.
Log in today with our special BPL Universal Class link to get started. [Librarian note: This is the free link for BPL cardholders. Universal Class is also available as a paid service elsewhere online.]
The great thing about Universal Class is that those who complete their courses with a passing score of 70% or higher receive certificates of completion. Universal Class keeps those on record for five years. The courses may be usable as valid forms of continuing education for some employers.
