NaNoWriMo 2016

Blog Section: 

NaNoWriMo, though it sounds like an alien greeting from the planet Ork, is actually the abbreviated version of a month-long celebration for writers called “National Novel Writing Month.”

During the month of November, writers are encouraged to pen a novel of 50,000 words and are given ample support though online forums, write-ins, writers’ discussion groups and more. NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

Phone Upgrades

Blog Section: 

In order to best serve our patrons, we are upgrading the telephones within the entire Delaware County District Library system. While we migrate, there may be some minor glitches or inconveniences in reaching your local DCDL branch. We appreciate your patience as we work through this to make the transition as seamless as possible. 

Notice Updates

The Delaware County District Library is happy to announce that we have recently eliminated overdue fines on all materials. Due to this policy change, we are making changes in notice messages, and adjusting the frequency with which you’ll be receiving reminders for items approaching, and past, their due dates.
