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

Blog Section: 

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.

Ostrander Library Closed 7/14

Blog Section: 

UPDATE: The Ostrander Branch Library is open today (Wednesday, July 15), but is experiencing a loss in Internet connection. The branch is still able to help with your regular Library needs, but the public computers are unable to connect to the Internet. 


The Ostrander Branch Library has been closed for the remainder of the day, Tuesday, July 14, due to a loss in power. The Scioto Township History 101 program scheduled for tonight has also been canceled due to the power loss and inclement weather. 

We plan to re-open the branch tomorrow at its regular hours.
