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.

Our Month of Tech Love comes to an end this week, so perhaps we should go out with something you might not expect. These days, the word "technology" conjures up very high-tech things indeed: smartphones, WiFi, supercomputers winning on Jeopardy, etc. However, sometimes the perfect thing you need is actually fairly low tech.
Sometimes, you just need to type something up on a real typewriter. It might be a form that has carbon paper or NCR paper, and that just won't go through a printer. Well, the Beauregard Parish Library does, in fact, still have an actual typewriter! It's available for use for the asking, in a quiet room where you can concentrate on getting typed up what you need.Sure, computers are great, but sometimes, you just need a real typewriter, and we have one!
