Delmar Public Library's 75th Anniversary Slogan Contest

Monday, December 29, 2014 12:24 PM

2015 marks the 75th Anniversary of Library service in the Town of Delmar. In April 1940, a group of concerned citizens in Delmar believed the town needed a library and began work to have the Delmar Public Library recognized by the Delaware Library Commission. Opening in one room on Grove Street, sharing the building that would house the town’s only doctor, the Library was open 6 hours a week, Tuesday and Thursday. Today, the Library is open 47 hours each week, Monday-Saturday, and the Board of Commissioners is leading the planned expansion of the library building and services ready to serve the residents of Delmar for the next twenty years.
