We offer several outstanding online services from e-books and audiobooks to movies and online classes.

When most people think of a library, they usually picture a big building filled with rows upon rows of books, magazines, and newspapers. They may even imagine a section for renting movies, games, or music. All of that is true, but lately libraries have been greatly expanding their digital content. Decatur Public Library is no exception to this, and we’re proud to offer a wealth of online services, both for desktop computers and mobile devices, including databases, online education programs, and apps with thousands of audiobooks, e-books, and movies.
