Every Saturday, except holiday weekends, Douglas County Libraries hosts casual drop-in sessions for anyone age 17 and older to practice English.

Douglas County Libraries just got a little brighter, and a little greener! Through a donation from the Sunflower Corporation, they installed a Sundolier™ daylight system for no cost at the Philip S.

This should help reduce electric light and cooling demands, and related emissions.
