The South Beauregard branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is closed today Saturday, August 1, 2020 because of bad weather; we apologize for the inconvenience.
The Beauregard Parish Library Board of Control will meet in a regularly called session at 4:45 PM on Monday Aug 3, 2020. This meeting will take place virtually via the Cisco WebEx platform, as allowed by the Governor’s executive order JBE 2020-30, in consideration of the social distancing guidelines in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Pursuant to the “Sunshine Laws” (La R.S. 42:14), meetings of this board are open to the public unless “Executive Session” is noted.

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.

This Friday, June 1st, will mark the beginning of our Summer Reading Program: "Libraries Rock!" After this Friday, the DeRidder Branch's YA room will host a new passive program for teens every week. (A passive program is an ongoing program which you may come and complete independently at any time.) There will be a new passive program on Tuesdays, and they will be available for your enjoyment all week.
To kick off SRP, next week's first passive program is titled "Together We Are The Music." There will be blank musical staffs on the wall, and jumbo musical notes on a table. If you don't know what musical staffs are, they are the five horizontal lines on sheet music that represent what pitch a note is in.
On the blank musical notes, write down your music recommendations, what music means to you, emotions music makes you feel, or the ways music ties you to your heritage or culture. Throughout the summer, Miss Stephanie will be putting the notes you write on the wall to create a melody. Hope to see you in the library!
