Sometimes you are looking for peace and quiet, and the Beauregard Parish Library is a good place to find it. However, there are times when the Library has activities that may interfere with that peace and quiet, or you just need an extra measure of separation from distractions.
For this, we have two options: the Study Carrels, and the Comfy Reading Room.
The Study Carrels are located towards the back of the building, between the Non-Fiction shelves, and the Juvenile Fiction room. One of the three may be reserved on our Request Meeting Room Use page, otherwise they are first come first served. They're great for that bit of concentrated effort to finish off a project.
The Comfy Reading Room is located just past the Circulation Desk. It's not always as quiet, but it's certainly comfy! Two nice arm chairs and a couch with arms that fold out to hold laptops make for extremely comfortable work. There's also a basket with some snacks and a coffee urn available in the morning. This is the only part of the building where eating and drinking is allowed - mothers with a cranky kid who's hungry might step in and give them a snack to tide them over.
Both rooms provide electrical outlets to keep a laptop charged, as well as a good clear signal for our WiFi network. We invite you to give them a try next time you're in the Library!
