How to Save Your Reading History

Blog Section: 

Patrons often ask Delaware County District Library staff if we have a list of the books they have read. To protect your privacy and confidentiality, the Library’s computer system does not keep a permanent record of the items you check out. But, the computer system offers YOU a way of keeping track of the Library items you’ve read, listened too, or watched, and it’s easy to set it up in your account.

Libraries Are As Relevant As Ever

Blog Section: 

In a recent blog post, a librarian from NYC’s public library was asked about the relevance of libraries. I have often been asked the same question: “Are libraries threatened by the internet?” I would echo the comments made on the blog.

I don’t think the Delaware County District Library is threatened at all by the internet. Circulation of physical books continues to be high, but I would argue that while books are certainly our brand, the Delaware Library is also in the information sharing business.
