Ostrander Branch Library kicked off Hispanic Heritage month with El Corazon de Mexico, a ballet folklorico dance troupe.  Elaina Hernandez the director, with members of the troupe performed traditional dances from many of the states of Mexico.  She also taught the history of each dance and even taught us a few steps. 

Muchas gracias to El Corazon de Mexico, we had a wonderful time.

This Book Is Gay by James Dawson

Join Me September 30!

As many of you know, I will be retiring from the Delaware County District Library on September 30, 2015 after 31 years of service to the Delaware community. It’s be a joyous and fulfilling ride and leaving the Library that has been such a HUGE part of my life for almost half of it will be a challenging transition for me.

OverDrive Media Stations in the Schools

Blog Section: 

As you're getting back into the groove of school and the day-to-day schedule, stop by your school media center and keep and eye open for the new OverDrive Media Station. The Delaware County District Library installed one at Buckeye Valley High School, Delaware Hayes High School, and Olentangy Liberty Middle School recently with help from a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services, through the State Library of Ohio. All you need is a library card from DCDL and an electronic device like a phone, tablet, or iPod. 

New Board Games at DCDL

Back in February we launched our new circulating board game collection here at DCDL. Over the past few months, you’ve helped make this one of our most popular collections here with a stunning 226 checkouts and renewals on our 22 games. Thank you for being awesome and getting together to play games with your friends and family. A couple months ago, we even had to add a couple spare copies of some of our most popular games just to keep up with demand.
