As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to grow within Daviess County and the surrounding communities, the Daviess County Public Library will remain closed until April 20. They will re-evaluate the situation at that time and make the decision to reopen or stay closed.

Users are encouraged to continue utilizing online services including Hoopla and Cloud Library. You can also participate in Big Library Read, and be eligible to win prizes.

Don’t have a library card? A limited-use E-card is available free for Daviess County residents only. This account will give you access to online resources through www.dcplibrary.org.

“We know that this is a difficult and scary time. Our staff has been working hard and collaborating on ways that we can still provide services to the community,” said Erin Waller, executive director. “We are posting video content, at-home activity ideas and much more on our Facebook and Instagram pages, so be sure to follow us. We are also sharing updated information about the virus, unemployment information, and much more.”
