Service Change Update

Starting Monday, May 17, DCPL is eliminating appointments and moving to one hour visits. Capacity will be reduced at branches to promote social distancing, so access will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Prior to entry, each patron must submit to a temperature screening and proper face coverings will be required. Patrons no longer need to call ahead to pick up items on hold and are encouraged to use self-checkout machines where available. Branches will be returning to normal business hours soon. 

Contact-free pickup transitions to “Grab-n-go”

Contact-free pickup for materials has transitioned to “grab-n-go". You can now pick up your items inside the branch. In order to provide a seamless checkout, please call your local branch in advance to schedule a pick up time for your items.
