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.

Girls Who Code is a free non-profit program that lets girls use computer science to impact their community and join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models. In the club, girls will learn foundational coding skills, but they will also learn how to work in a team, problem solve, and communicate. We will work on computer science projects, such as building a website, or creating a computer game or mobile app to solve a problem in our community. No previous computer science skills are necessary - we have activities for girls with zero computer science experience.
Meetings will be held in the DeRidder branch by Miss Stephanie every Tuesday afternoon from 2:00 - 3:00 beginning May 29th - August 7th. Registration is required. There will be ten sessions over the summer, and girls are encouraged to attend every session so they can learn how to code and complete an impact project. It will be fun and snacks will be provided! We will end the class with a short graduation ceremony and cake.
For more information, or to register, please contact Miss Stephanie at 463-6217 ext. 30, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. All girls in 6th - 12th grade are welcome. Join the club today!
