The Library Board of Trustees has launched a capital campaign to raise $90,000  to implement a landscaping design plan for the library grounds — a plan that will incorporate the best of our established prairie plantings with professionally landscaped beds and low impact features to produce a sustainable and inviting environment for all.

Learn a Language with MANGO

Thanks to funding from Friends of DCL, we now provide Mango Languages as an online learning resource. Mango is free of charge to all library card holders and is an easy and effective way to learn to speak a foreign language.
