Just For Adults

A Place for Everybody

The library’s adult collection includes a wide variety of fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks, music CDs, Xbox and PS4 games, documentaries, and feature films, as well as print collections in Spanish and Arabic. Library staff are happy to assist you with reference services, notary services by appointment, voter registration, and personalized recommendations. If we don’t own an item, feel free to request a purchase.

We subscribe to several electronic resources that allow DKPL patrons to access eBooks, eAudiobooks, research and leisure databases, and streaming movies and television shows.

The library hosts a variety of programs aimed at educating and entertaining adults in our community. Whether you want to play a game, learn to write a résumé, or pick up a new skill, we’ve got you covered.
