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.
