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 teen programming department is running a Girls Who Code project this summer, which leads to a reminder that the library proudly supports programming for everyone!
We have installed on every patron computer a wide variety of programming tools, including Bluefish for editing, the Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment), and Virtaal for working on translation files for various projects. We also have pre-installed a large variety of languages, including Python, Ruby, Perl, and Java.
