Delmar Public Library - Your Bi-State Library

Dynamic! Wonderful! Wow! Once completed in 2016, as conceptualized in this brief film clip, the Delmar Public Library will claim its place as a community centerpiece for the Town of Delmar. Within walking distance of most town residents and schools, the Library will enhance the community with
• An expansive community meeting and program space;
• A dedicated youth program space;
• A small group meeting and conversation space;
• Tutoring, study, and entrepreneurial planning space;
• Increased collection, leisure reading, children’s and teen spaces;
• Flexible technology capacity and space.
An investment in the Library, our mission, and our community.

Penny/Coin Challenge in Support of the Delmar Library’s Capital Campaign

Thursday, May 14, 2015 10:00 AM
With support from Delmar Elementary School and the Wicomico County Board of Education, students will soon be collecting pennies and coins for the Delmar Public Library’s capital campaign in a Penny/Coin Challenge. In a friendly competition between classes, students will collect coins until June 8 and return their collection boxes (provided by the Library) to school. The class collecting the most money will receive a class party prior to the last day of school. Involving children in the campaign supports the future of the library and shows each child the results from their donation. Let’s give children and families a chance to say “I built that!”
