Who We Are

Douglas County Libraries welcomes everyone. In doing so, we condemn racism in all its forms, as well as any other oppression that divides and destroys our community.

DCL is part of the Urban Library Council and has cosigned a social equity statement.

Our Vision

Douglas County Libraries elevates our community by inspiring a love of reading, discovery and connection.
