 About the Library

In 2003 the library built a new building totaling 6,000 sq.ft. and significantly increased its collection. The Darien Public Library provides a multitude of wonderful materials and services to the Village of Darien and its surrounding communities. If you’re looking for items to check out, our material collection includes books, audio books on CD, magazines, music cds, Dvd’s ,  All can be rented at no cost with your free Darien library card or with a card from most surrounding area libraries. The Library offers storytimes for preschool children, and many other events and programs throughout the year.

In- Library book Sale

In an effort to make more room for new materials, we have been “weeding” out lots of books. We have a variety available in children’s and adults which includes Large Print.  We welcome you to come and browse to see what selection we have available. Our children’s books are .25 cents and our adult books are .50 cents for soft covered and $1.00 for hard cover and Large print alike. If you like to read or know someone who does we invite you to come take a look.

The Share Consortium of Libraries

Did you know that the Darien Library is a part of a large group of libraries called the SHARE CONSORTIUM?  What this means to you, as a patron, is that you can borrow materials not only from the Darien Library, but also from all libraries in Walworth, Racine, Kenosha, and Rock Counties. This means you can get or request items from Delavan, Janesville or Racine and many more. Stop in to the library  and ask for a list of libraries that you can visit. Your library card will be able to be used at any of these libraries. Each day we have a driver whose job it is to bring us items that our patrons have put on hold from other libraries, and to pick up items of our that are being requested from cardholders at other libraries.. Our computer systems are all connected, and so our are costs. The purpose of the consortium is to keep us all doing things the same way, and to help keep our costs down. This way no small library will ever “fall through the cracks” in the service it is able to provide.

I am the Library .

I am neither walls nor shelves.

Nor even the books that stand in rows

I am the wisdom of the universe;

Captured and arranged for you…

I am an open dooo…enter
