Service Alert

Due to a contract conflict between two software vendors, our DC Public Library app is currently experiencing functionality limitations, particularly with the "Search the catalog" and "Popular Titles" features located at the top. The vendors are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible. The library's catalog can still be accessed via our website both on mobile and on desktop, for your convenience.
