District of Columbia Public Library App features

The DC Library Android app is your portal to enjoying DC Public Library services on your Android device. With it, you can quickly search library resources, find information and materials and get full access to your library account -- wherever you are!

With the DC Library app, you can:

• Search the catalog for books, DVDs and more.

• Access your account and pay fines.

• Place or cancel holds on items.

• Renew checked-out materials.

• Find the library nearest to you in the District.

• Access ebooks, eaudiobooks, music, classes and more from our Digital Library.

• Browse events at your nearest library.

• Interact with DC Public Library social media.

Searching for library books, movies, and music has never been easier. Just type the first few letters of any keyword (title, author, etc.) and see the search results as you type. For example, to find books on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, you can just type “ja ke on” into the search box.
