Welcome to the new web site of the Downers Grove Public Library (DGPL). This blog will be my opportunity to talk about the services and programs of the Downers Grove Public Library, and to inform patrons about issues that affect this library or public libraries in general. As a local public library, we are unique because we focus specifically on the needs and interests of the residents of Downers Grove. While we cannot afford to be open 24 hours per day, seven days per week, we can provide patrons with access to many of our personalized services 24/7 through our website. These services include your library’s collection of reference resources in online databases; recommendations of great websites; suggestions of good books, movies, and recordings; and even a variety of opportunities to interact with library staff directly. Future posts will focus on each of these topics. We hope you will take advantage of the services we offer through the new website, and that you will find it the place to go when you need to know.
