Deerfield Public Library

he Deerfield Public Library is a state-of-the art 21st century library – with lots of cozy chairs! The library is a welcoming place to check out a book, use reference materials, study, hear a program, take a class, sit and read, or gather with friends and colleagues.

But the Library is also a virtual entity that you can take with you around the world through your phone or computer tablet. You can download and read books and magazines, stream movies, TV shows, and music, and do in-depth research, from remote locations.

At the Library itself, a wide range of free programs are available for all ages and abilities. Need help creating Excel spreadsheets or learning Twitter basics? Those are just two of the approximately 100 technology classes offered annually at the Library.

If you’re looking for quality children’s entertainment and unique programs for adults and teens, the DPL is the place for you. Last year, the Library presented nearly 450 youth programs and over 200 adult programs, which have been so popular that early registration is recommended.

Community groups, including book clubs, homeowners’ associations, and writers’ groups, keep the Library’s meeting rooms buzzing year round. The three side-by-side rooms, with movable walls, can accommodate from 20 to 120 people. Groups can reserve space up to three months in advance at no fee.

Smaller spaces for more intimate groups are also available. There are eight study rooms that are acquired on a first come, first served basis. Some can only accommodate two people for quiet study while others can accommodate four or six people at a time for group study or project work.

The Library is also equipped with a very robust WiFi system throughout the whole building. Patrons can run their phones, tablets, and laptops anywhere, anytime.
