The DeRidder Branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is now open Monday through Wednesday and Friday between 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM, Thursday between 9:00 AM and 7:30 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Details of our Phase 3 operations can be seen here. We are working on hurricane clean-up and remediation to return service to our rural locations as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Dear Beauregard Parish Library Patrons:
While the COVID-19 long-term impacts on daily life remain uncertain, I am hopeful that we can reopen your library as soon as it is safe for us to do so. Anticipating this event, a multi-phased plan has been put in place that will allow us to resume library services efficiently and safely for patrons and staff, alike.
Each phase is expected to last between one and four weeks but please note that dates and duration are all subject to change based on recommendations from health and safety authorities as well as our access to supplies. The general phases are:
Resuming operations in a structured manner will help ensure that we can continue to provide library services without unnecessary additional interruptions while practicing the highest level of responsibility to our community and employees.
If the Stay at Home orders expire on April 30, we hope to have our outside bookdrops at all locations ready to accept returning items starting late May 1 and to begin limited curbside pick-up services for books, DVDs, and audiobooks in the middle of the following week at our DeRidder location, adding rural locations shortly thereafter.
Please monitor our website our social media accounts on FaceBook and Instagram, or call 337-463-6217 for updates.
