Welcome to the library.
You must be a logged in member to order resources from the library. For non members, we hope that the reviews of the books are useful for you. If you would like to join the DC Network, please click here.

Instruction for borrowing books when services resume:
once you are logged in you can click on the 'Borrow this book' button to order it from the library. Items are sent to you free of charge. You cover the cost of return postage and packing. People can borrow a maximum of 3 items at this time for a maximum of 4 weeks from date sent.

PLEASE NOTE: The books must be returned to the Librarian (address on cover of books) and NOT the DCN office.
We regret that we are only able to post to UK addresses as unfortunately the cost of postage outside the UK is prohibitive.

The library is run by a volunteer and as such, it can at times take a few days for the publications to be posted out so order in plenty of time. For any queries contact Library.dcn@outlook.com
