We have 20 Chromebooks available in the library for patron use. Currently, 15 are being made available for patrons to check out and take home for a week’s use. The other 5 are available for use inside the library. They will connect automatically to our Wi-Fi network.
We have 10 hotspots available for take-home checkout.
We almost always have a staff member on duty able to answer questions and help you find items! Come by the library during any of our operating hours, or call the Information Desk at 972-780-5052.
Displays and Reading Lists
Our monthly displays highlight all sorts of subjects and authors throughout the year! Come to the library to see this month’s display. We also have a collection of themed reading lists.
Language Learning Tools
One tool we recommend is Duolingo. It offers free practice in a variety of languages. It is available online, as well as through a smartphone app.
We also recommend Pronunciator, which is available through our TexShare Databases. Sign in to TexShare and then create your own Pronunciator account.
TexShare Card Program
Duncanville participates in the TexShare card program. This allows Duncanville residents to go to other libraries for free after getting a TexShare card. Residents of other cities may acquire a TexShare card from their home library and bring it to Duncanville to obtain free limited borrowing privileges. For more information, click here.
This service allows Duncanville cardholders who live in the city to request items belonging to other libraries and have them mailed to the Duncanville Library for a $3.00 postage fee. Patrons may search for and request items here or speak to a library staff member.
We have three study rooms available for individuals or small groups on a first-come, first-served basis. Our programming room is also available when not in use by the library. Children and teens must be accompanied by an adult in order to use the study rooms. If you are looking for a venue for a party or a larger group, the Recreation Center offers meeting rooms for rent (scroll down to just below the hours.)
