If you need help, please get in touch directly by phone (847) 827-5551 or by email.

We’re Getting a New Look - and a New Catalog!

During the week of April 16th, our library consortium of 24 area libraries (CCS) will be transitioning to a new online catalog.

The 24 CCS Consortium Libraries

This means a new look - and some new bells and whistles - that will make the catalog easier to search and use. Get more information about the new catalog changeover.

You are going to love:

  • The new responsive design will make it easy to use the catalog on any device: phone, tablet or computer.
  • A new mobile app! If you use the DPPL app now, our plan is to keep the current app available to you for a short period after the transition. We are also planning the release of a new app, called DPPL Mobile, to follow shortly after the April 17th date.
  • Choose an easy to remember username (optional)
  • Easily update your notification preferences, including email, text, or automated calls.
  • Access all the same materials from any of the consortium's libraries, with the option to change your preferred pickup location.
