Durham County Library

Although the Durham County Library is closed, you can still borrow digital books.  You can also check out audiobooks, magazines, tv shows and movies.  

DCL has  temporarily removed checkout restrictions based on previously accumulated fines. Even if you have $10+ of fines on your account, you will be able to use the online resources during this closure.
