Starting today, DCDL is expanding our board game collection to include role playing game books. These are the pen and paper variety, and cover a wide variety of genres and themes from running a colony on Mars, to time travel, to anime style exploration. We've had some Dungeons and Dragons books in the larger collection already, but we're adding 13 more books to the collection. These are found with the board games at the Delaware Branch, but holds can be placed on them to go to any of our other branches for pick up there.
Due to a loss of power in the Orange Township area, the Delaware County District Library Orange Branch has closed for the remainder of the day, Tuesday, January 10, 2017.
Delaware Main, Powell and Ostrander branch libraries will continue to operate on their regular business hours.
This year, in an effort to give greater significance to the contributions of Dr. King and honor his legacy, the Library will operate on our regular hours on Monday, January 16, but offer many programs based on the holiday.
On Monday, January 16, storytimes will be back on their regular schedules and they’ll have a special twist to incorporate juvenile books and activities about civil rights and freedom.
