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.

Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.
We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.
Rose and Thorn [ebook] by Sarah Prineas
This e-book found on Overdrive is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty where a wicked Godmother likes to trap unsuspecting people into her web of a story. Once in the story, the people become the characters and loose their own will. In this book there are some colorful and fun as well as complex people. And of course there is a “Beauty” and a “Prince”. There is interesting world building and lots of plot twists. And there is a beautiful and subtle romance that is slow to build. If you like fairy tales retold or a nice, gentle romance you will like this book.
If Rose and Thorn interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
