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.
The "How Do You Do That?" program scheduled for Monday, August 8 at the Orange Branch Library has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled for a later date. The program will feature local artist Carol Van Dyke, give information about the creative process of sculpture and feature her signature animals.
It's been a full eight weeks of "Ready. Set. Read!" at the Delaware County District Library. We hope you enjoyed yourself as you experienced all the elements of Summer Reading Club.

We are certainly living in a mobile world. If you haven’t heard lately, something phenomenal happened in America on July 6 called Pokémon GO. The mobile app uses location-based augmented reality technology. It encourages users to interact with the world around them through the eyes of their mobile devices as they try to catch and collect Pokémon species and other necessary Pokémon-catching tools.

No more pinching and zooming, and all the resources you know and love are only one "tap" away.
