Beauregard Parish Library

Knowledge, Growth, Imagination

As a precaution against the spread of COVID-19, the Beauregard Parish Library is closed with an expected return to service on April 13, 2020.

No items are due and no cards will expire during this closure. WiFi remains available in the areas immediately surrounding our branches and digital services remain available through our website. If you are unsure how to use our digital services, we’ve added some helpful tutorials at Nicheacademy.

Covid 19 Information Update: March 16,2020 can be found here.

The Beauregard Parish Library is subject to the so-called “Sunshine Laws” (La R.S. 42:14) regarding open meetings. See an excerpt of this law below. Additional legislature can be seen by searching the State Legislature page.
