The Adult Library is housed on the main floor and spans both the 1900 building and the 1969 addition. Currently there are just over 75,000 items available including books, DVDs, music, and microfilms of local history materials.
There is a wide range of fiction titles, including an excellent collection of mysteries, and many titles available in large print. We also have several stand alone sections including Science Fiction & Fantasy, Westerns, and Christian Fiction.
The Adult Library also houses a large number of non-fiction titles and biographies on many subjects.
Our DVD collection now contains almost 1800 titles, and is sure to have something for everyone's tastes.
Our new microfilm reader will again make the microfilms of the Dixon Sun and Telegraph, as well as census materials from the nineteenth century available to local historians and geneaologists.
If the Dixon Public Library does not own the particular item you're looking for our catalog also contains all of the holdings at Sterling and Rock Falls Public libraries, as well as those owned by schools throughout the three communities, a total of around 250,000 items. You can place a hold for these items by logging in to your library account and placing a hold, just as you would with books held here at DPL.
If you still can't find it, then please feel free to fill in an Interlibrary Loan request.
Come by and always feel free to ask the staff for help if you can't find just what you're looking for.
