We have a large collection at the Dupont Branch, but if we do not
have the title you need, we will gladly borrow it from another ACPL
location. If ACPL does not own the item, we might be able
to borrow it from a library outside the county (see Interlibrary
Loan). There is usually no charge for this service.

computers with Internet access and Microsoft applications (Word,

12 and under, and one is reserved for teens.
The library also has four Macintosh computers in the children’s
area. These have educational and word processing software.

Some of the options available are copying 2-sided documents, enlarging and shrinking, selecting 8.5" x 11" or 11" x 17" paper sizes, and saving copies to a usb flash device.
