It's well-documented that DPL staff is talented, hard-working and creative when it comes to customer service, maintaining our buildings and performing behind-the-scenes duties, but many of us are also aspiring artists.

Have you ever come to the library in the summer and thought to yourself..."I wish I could do Summer of Reading!" Well, your wish is our command.
Winter of Reading is here! Winter of reading is an adult reading program like the Summer of Reading, except it’s for adults. You read and complete library-related activities, check them off in your brochure, and then claim your prizes. Simple yet sweet.
What is the best thing to do during the long cold winter months? Why, read of course! Anyone who is a Book Person (and aren’t we all) can tell you that the best way to spend a cold day is curled up with a good book, listening to some tunes and sipping from a steaming mug of tea.
