The Algiers Regional branch is located near the RTA's Algiers Local, General deGaulle, and Algiers Owl Loop bus routes.
Note that it may not be advisable to send young children by themselves to this location by bus. It is adjacent to a very busy shopping center parking lot, and near two very busy multi-lane intersections, lacking pedestrian crossing signals and sidewalks.

Before Hurricane Katrina, Algiers Regional was the larger of the two NOPL branches in Algiers. The building suffered major roof damage in the storm. Wind driven rain entered the building, ruining its contents. The gutted branch is currently being used as a holding and sorting space for book donations from around the world.
Algiers Regional patrons are being served by an adjacent modular building funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Gulf Coast Libraries Project.
