  • TLC Planned Maintenance

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

  • 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.
