DeKalb County Public Library is partnering with the American Red Cross to host several Emergency Blood Drives during the month of April. During the COVID-19 pandemic, blood donations are critically needed to be distributed to hospitals. The first blood drive will be held on Thursday, April 9 at the Dunwoody Library from 11:00 am-4:00 pm. Additional dates include April 10, at Hairston Crossing Library and April 16, at the Dunwoody Library. The Red Cross is taking extra precautions to ensure that blood donations as well as donors are safe.

Although the library is closed, you can apply for a temporary digital library card that allows you to use our online materials. You can do this if you’ve misplaced or are unable to use your current library card. If you have a card, but forgot your PIN, you can go to the My Account page and click the "Forgot your pin?" link.
How do I register for a card?
Even though our branches will be closed, DCPL will continue to provide a wide variety of digital services that can be accessed from our website. These do require a library card and PIN, but can be used anywhere, anytime. If you do not have a library card yet, you can apply for a card that will temporarily work with all of our online resources except OverDrive. For access to OverDrive, send an email here. If you have a card, but forgot your PIN, you can go to the My Account page and click the "Forgot your pin?" link.
