Summer Programs & Events

Blog Section: 

Last summer more than 6,500 readers read over 33,000 hours. Let’s try and beat that in 2017! This summer, we’re trying to build a better world by using reading to build our dreams. It’s reflected in our summer reading theme: "Dream It. Read It. Build It." From May 25 to August 4 every DCDL location will be ready with prizes for hitting your 6 and 12 hour bench marks. The branches will be hosting weekly programs to grow your brain, too.

Dino Terrariums Were Prehistoric Fun!

Last week at the Powell Branch, kids joined us for a special intro to terrariums featuring everyone's favorite prehistoric beasts--dinosaurs!! Participants gathered soil, rocks, moss, and mini plants as well as some mini dinosaur figurines to create their own dinosaur habitats. At the end of the program, everyone joined together to make a community dinosaur environment to display in the library! Check out our pictures and maybe try one at home!

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.
