Douglas County Library Goes Outside the Lines

Libraries are dynamic, exciting centers for engagement, and are more relevant than ever before. Outside the Lines celebrates libraries' spirit of creativity and innovation! All week, libraries across the U.S. will reintroduce themselves to their communities, and get people thinking and talking about libraries in a whole new way.
