  • TLC Planned Maintenance

    The Library Corporation will be having planned maintenance on Saturday, June 3 from 2:30 PM. 

    This will affect our patrons’ ability to use OMNI/Libby.  Estimated time for services to be restored is 6:30 PM. 

    Thank you for your patience.  This will apply to all libraries in the Rock River consortium.

  • BookBrowse is now available for DPL Patrons!

    Patrons of the Dixon Public Library now have free access to BookBrowse.com, a leading book recommendation and review website, thanks to a subscription taken out by the library.

    Patrons can access all of BookBrowse, including its premium content, from anywhere at any time. To start browsing immediately simply click on the link on the library's website or just go to https://www.bookbrowse.com/libweb?nylip=996873&rel

    The very best books entertain, engage and enlighten. They wrap us in their world, giving us a window into the lives of others or a mirror to reflect on ourselves. These are the books you'll find on BookBrowse - such as novels that whisk you to unfamiliar times and places, thrillers that are more than just 'page-turners', and thought-provoking non-fiction that entertains as it informs.

The Dixon Public Library is here to meet your information needs. Recreation, education, research; our friendly staff can help you with all of your requirements.

We are working on making improvements to the building and its environs and hope that the library is an even more welcoming, comfortable place to visit and stretch your mind, or relax into something fun.

The library is governed by our Board of Trustees, who set the budget, establish policy, and oversee its management. Information about the board, its meetings, and the current policy manual are here.
