Beauregard Parish Library

Knowledge, Growth, Imagination

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.

Find It Friday - Improvements By Vendors

One thing everyone has become aware of: the Internet has greatly sped up the rate of change in things. This can be a problem for some things, but it also means that things can improve a lot very quickly.

The various vendors we get many of our services from are constantly trying to be on the "improve things" side. This means, from time to time, that they update their website, or roll out new version of their mobile apps. Recently, we've had several that have all done this within the last couple of months, or are in the process of doing it now:

  • Access Video on Demand - great movies and documentaries for free!
  • Tutor.com - the subject of last week's Find It Friday
  • Overdrive has added a new app for mobile devices called Libby. Many of the library staff members have tried it and agree it is quite a bit nicer than the old app for using Overdrive.
  • TumbleBooks is adding a section of romance books this summer just in time for the Summer Reading Program (Libraries ROCK!)
  • Zinio has made a major upgrade to their app, as well as the servers that feed both the app and their website. If you're looking for great magazines, Zinio is the place!

Enjoy the upgrades, and keep an eye out for announcements of even more to come!
