Dear Library Friends,
Sending you love from everyone at the DFPL in this difficult time. We look forward to seeing you in person now that the library has opened by appointment! For more information about how you can book an appointment to visit the library and our curbside check out and delivery services, please visit our reopening page.
You’ll find more information about our new online programs and virtual services below and through the links in the right hand menu.
Our online collections and resources are available 24/7 with your library card, including eBooks, audiobooks, streaming video, and free online classes. If you don’t have a library card, you can create a digital library “eCard” to access our online resources at http://bit.ly/dfplecard.
We hope you will tune in for our virtual story time, craft, and coding programs on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, community group meetups, quiz nights, and fact checking happy hour on Zoom, and special performances and talks on Crowdcast. For more information, check out our events calendar or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are here to help so please don’t hesitate to call us at 845-424-3020 or email us with questions, any requests for help or information, or just to check in and say hello.
We look forward to seeing you here at the library again soon. Please stay safe, be well, and keep in touch in the meantime!
