The library is committed to providing equal access to information, idead and knowledge through books and other resources. The library believes in and supports intellectual freedom for all.


 The Library will be closed on Monday, May 31, in obersvance of Memorial Day.


The Douglas Library is now open regular hours EXCLUDING Friday evenings for the time being.  All visitors are still required to wear a mask . If you would rather pick up library items curbside, we will be happy to oblige.  Let us know by phone or email what you wish to borrow.   We look forward to seeing you again!
