Delaware County District Library – Main Branch

Announcing event number four in the 2018 edition of our award-winning Summer of Tours!
Delaware County District Library (DCDL) is a vibrant, welcoming center of activity for residents and visitors in Delaware County, providing information, entertainment, and community engagement. They encourage reading, learning, and lifelong discovery, and are proud to be recognized for engaging minds, expanding opportunities, and improving the quality of life in Delaware County.

We will hear about the services DCDL provides to the Delware County community and get a chance to tour the Delaware Main Library, which, at 35,000 square feet, is the largest (and oldest) branch of the DCDL. Just around the corner from downtown Delaware, the Main Library serves the public and houses many of the DCDL’s administrative offices.

We will also hear about the DCDL’s recent transition into becoming part of the Central Library Consortium (CLC), a coalition of 17 libraries in Central Ohio including Columbus Metropolitan Library, Worthington Libraries, Upper Arlington Public Library, and many more. The CLC shares materials between libraries and seeks to expand library services in Central Ohio by fostering collaboration between member libraries.

Joe O’Rourke is Adult Services Manager at the Delaware County District Library.  Joe is responsible for overseeing reference services, collection development, and adult programming.  Joe has an MLS from Kent State University and has been with Delaware County District Library for 20 years.
