Frequently Asked Questions

Drake Community Library

The Drake Community Library (DCL) has developed a COVID-19 resource guide that is intended to be a central resource for the community in its response to COVID-19.

DCL has reduced its hours of operation and has limited physical access to library services. As of March 18, the library service model is ramping up Coronavirus protocols even further to provide “curbside pickup” of materials only. This can be accomplished by telephoning the Library or submitting an online request form. Currently physical access to an internet workstation for public use is not available. Wireless access is available 24/7 and extends outdoors to the west and south patio areas on Library property. Telephone reference services will continue during hours of operation.
