Deuterocanonical books are divinely inspired scripture, the church encourages these books to be read privately since most of them are not officially read during the course of the liturgical cycle. They are listed in the various canons of the Church along with the rest of the canonical scriptures. Old Testament books will be found in the Septuagint, St Athanasius also recognizes one or two NT 'deuterocanonical books' as well.

If my memory serves me right, every list of the Fathers has the book of Baruch as a canonical scripture and not a secondary book as modern day versions suggest. This book is indeed read during the liturgical cycle of the church.
