Our latest snapshot took place on February 13, 2019. During this time, we documented the many ways people use library services.
Library staff took pictures of activities, gathered statistics on usage and collected customer comments showing how patrons used the library that day.

“Hard to imagine my life without the library.” Paul
“Reading opens doors to the world for me. My weekly visit to the library is a highlight of my week!” Kathy W.

Volusia County Public Library has partnered with PBC Guru and Freading to create a virtual book club for patrons and the community.
The book for August 5 - October 7 is Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton.
A lost father, a mute brother, a mother in jail, a heroin dealer for a stepfather and a notorious felon for a babysitter. It's not as if Eli's life isn't complicated enough already. He's just trying to follow his heart, learning what it takes to be a good man, but life just keeps throwing obstacles in the way... Joyous and heartbreaking, this is a story of brotherhood, true love and the most unlikely of friendships.
It is always available for download from Freading.
