Deerfield Public Library

The Deerfield Public Library is a state-of-the art 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, a wide range of free programs are available for all ages and abilities. Interested in learning about Instagram or how to use a 3-D printer? Those are just two of the diverse technology classes offered monthly at the library. You can also make an appointment for one-on-one instruction.

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 over 600 youth programs and nearly 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 10 to 80 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.
