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 Policy page, found listed in the horizontal menu just below the Library logo on the home page, is a valuable resource for finding out how the Library can and cannot interact with our Patrons, the community around us, law enforcement, and other entities. It can be very useful to review.
Just recently, it was updated to include a link to the Library Confidentiality Policy, explaining what records the Library keeps, who has access to them, and notes on other services offered through the Library which have separate privacy policies. There's also links to information on what to do should your information be stolen, whether it's stolen from a credit card company, your webmail provider, or even from a local or online retailer.
It's a changing world out there, with new ideas coming and going, and old concepts of privacy and sharing being re-written. Be careful, and learn what you can to do protect yourself and recover from new problems like identity theft!
