Director's Welcome

Greetings!

On behalf of our staff and board members, please allow me to welcome you to the Beauregard Parish Library. For nearly seven decades, we have been encouraging and facilitating knowledge, growth, and imagination for the residents and guests of Beauregard Parish.

While much has changed in the library field over that time, one thing remains constant: our dedication to meeting your information needs. Whether it's downloading a new audio book at 3am, asking a tutor to clarify that last math problem, accessing our free WiFi, learning a new language, joining one of our many events, or checking out some books and DVDs for your family, we're here to help you get the information you need.

To best serve you, we have part-time branch locations across the parish in the Fields, Merryville, Ragley, and Singer communities with a new location in Wye planned. In addition, our main branch in DeRidder is open every weekday plus Saturday mornings. Our locations and hours can be found here. Don't feel like leaving home? Explore our website to discover our myriad digital products and services you can access from home 24/7!

To stay current with our offerings, don't forget to visit our online Calendar of Events and like our FaceBook page. Our staff is happy to help you with any questions or suggestions you may have. Moreover, I welcome you to stop in for a visit or contact me at 337-463-6217 or at admin@beau.org.

Welcome to your library,

Erin N. Chesnutt, MLIS
