Funding the Future




 

The Delmar Public Library has been at the center of attention for local politicians in the First State.

 

In April 2019, U.S. Sen. Tom Carper got a chance to see the brand new, state of the art library that residents in Delmar now have the opportunity to use.

 

It’s a library that’s been a long time coming, but only possible thanks to local, state and federal funds including a $2.5 million loan from USDA Rural Development and NCALL (National Council on Agricultural Life and Labor).

 

“There’s a saying that says ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, it also takes a village and then some to build a beautiful library like this. This is a great amenity for children and frankly people who are parents or grandparents as well,” explains Sen. Carper.

 

In June 2019, Delaware First Lady Tracey Quillen Carney, along with State Librarian Dr. Annie Norman, and Delaware Division of the Arts Director Paul Weagraff, visited to Library to officially kick off 2019 Summer Reading Program, enjoying a performance by special guest ventriloquist Uncle Ty-Rone the Kids’ Comedian. Students from Delmar Elementary School enjoyed the performance.

 

Since opening in December 2018, the library has become a hub for people of all ages. Not just to check out books but to hang out, get homework help, free meals, ESL classes, storytimes, and much more .

 

The library is open Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.  on Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

Please make a donation to the Library's capital campaign to sustain a beautiful community center that is much needed in Delmar!
