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.

Help Shape the Future of DC Public Library

DC Public Library is gathering input on how we can best serve our communities. We would like to understand how your use of the Library may have changed in the last three years, what needs you have that the Library can help meet, and more. This feedback will inform the creation of a new Strategic Framework Plan and guide our work in the coming years.
