DeKalb County Public Library welcomes you to our new website. We think you will enjoy the improvements we have made.
This new site is much more versatile and automatically adapts its format to any computer, tablet or mobile device to give you the best user experience. The design is cleaner and easier to read while being more colorful and visual at the same time. Additionally, dekalblibrary.org now is more secure and easier to update. The new platform allows staff to make changes more quickly.
A few parts of the new site are still under construction, but this will not interfere with your use. You may find that bookmarks you previously saved to certain pages will no longer work. If this is the case, you can do a search using the “Find It” box here on the homepage (top right) to access the new location. Make sure you click on the down arrow next to the “Find It” box and select “In the Library’s Website.”
Please let us know what you think about the new site. Send feedback or questions through our New Website Feedback form. Post your remarks on your social media accounts and use our hashtag, #dcplga.
