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.

These days, you can't escape computers. They're everywhere! But sometimes, your computer at home doesn't work, or you don't have internet at home, or even just your printer isn't working.
For those cases, we love to have you come in and use our patron computer lab! Each branch has computers available for patrons to come in and do homework, type up documents, do research, communicate with friends all over the world, or even play some games. You want to write the next Great American Novel? Come in and do it surrounded by books on our computers.
The patron computers come equipped with a wide variety of software, including word processors, spreadsheet, graphics programs, web browsers, educational programs, and even software for designing electronics and creating your own programs.
We love our patron computers, and we love to see our patrons come in to use them! If you don't have an account, check at the circulation desks - each account comes with a free e-mail address! We can even do guest login codes for users who don't live in the area.
