The Books for DC project makes the DC Public Library's resources more accessible by bringing them to digital platforms DC residents already use.
With the booksfordc browser extension, you can now easily determine the availability of books, ebooks, and audiobooks at the DCPL as you browse Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble.
All booksfordc tools, including its browser extensions, catalog feed, and newsletters, are made available at no cost, but you can show your support by making a contribution. Thank you!
Now that you will be visiting the library all the time, you might need a bag to carry your haul.
Check out the Books for DC canvas tote bag.
Wish you could keep up with the latest additions to the DCPL book catalog? Now you can.
Just follow the @booksfordc Twitter account, which tweets out new books at the DCPL as they come in. In addition to this feed, you can subscribe to a daily or weekly email digest of new holdings using these IFTTT recipes.
Download any of our promotional images and flyers to let others in your community know about booksfordc's tools.
