DeKalb County Public Library Will Unveil New Website in November 2014

DeKalb County Public Library will launch its new website later this month. The new site will be much more versatile and automatically adapt its format to any computer, tablet or mobile device to give you the best user experience. You also will find a design that is cleaner and easy to read while being more colorful and visual at the same time.

Additionally, the site will be more secure and easier to update. The new platform allows staff to make changes more quickly.
