National Library Week

"Libraries Transform" is the theme for National Library Week in 2017.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.

Celebrations during National Library Week include:

"Glad You Asked" April 1, 2017

Blog Section: 

If you've come to this site after having read the "Glad You Asked" article in the Delaware Gazette, thank you, and ... April Fools! While many of these considerations I've named could be quite plausible, I will assure you, they are not on our radar for implementation at DCDL just yet. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

DCDL Adds Role Playing Games to the Collection

Blog Section: 

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.

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.
