WE HAVE A BRAND NEW COPIER!! Sorry for shouting, but we’re just so excited.
It slices! It dices! It juliennes! …………. No. Wait, that was something else.
The new copier DOES:
- print in color
- have a document feeder
- hole punch
- make double sided copies
And all of this technological advancement for the low, low cost of 10 cents per page. (fyi, that actually means each side of a sheet of paper.)
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.)
We offer black-and-white copies at 10 cents per page.
We now have COLOR printing available. Currently, the price is only 10 cents per side.
The original title of Fahrenheit 451 was “The Fireman.” Ray Bradbury and his publishers thought The Fireman was a boring title, so they called a local fire station and asked what temperature paper burned at. The firemen put Bradbury on hold while they burned a book, then reported back the temperature, and the rest is history.
We offer outbound faxing at 25 cents per page.
