Transform your ideas about the library: celebrate National Library Week April 10-16
Defiance Public Library System with locations in Defiance, Hicksville and Sherwood will join libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and by libraries across the country each April.
“Libraries Transform” is this year’s theme for National Library Week, April 10-16, 2016. In honor of National Library Week we wanted to share 11 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do Through Defiance Public Library System.

Thank you for beginning the process of applying for a new library card.
Immediately after applying for your new card, you will receive a temporary ID that will allow you to place a hold on one item from our catalog. Within 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays, you will be e-mailed a second temporary ID. This one will allow you to place a hold on one item from our catalog and allow use of our electronic resources, including research databases, e-books and other sources like Hoopla and Lynda.com. This temporary ID is good for 4 weeks.
If you would like to request or check-out physical material and continue to use our electronic resources, you will need to obtain your permanent library card before the end of the 4 week period. You can do this by visiting any of our library locations.
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to obtain a permanent library card.
