Hayman Meeting Room Reservations Unavailable

Thursday, July 24, 2014 8:00 AM
Starting August 8, the Hayman Meeting Room will become the staging area for the Library’s move to temporary quarters during our construction project. All reservations of the room by the public will end. And we regret to say that we will have limited space in our temporary quarters and are unlikely to have a meeting room that the public can reserve.

On the flip side of this inconvenience: when we reopen in 2015 in our new library, our meeting room will accommodate 100 people, will have a larger kitchen area, and will have handicapped accessible restrooms adjacent to the room.

Stay tuned for more updates about the move and our temp location!

Tuesday, July 08, 2014 6:56 AM
The Delmar Public Library is pleased to announce it is the recipient of a $100,000 challenge grant from the Longwood Foundation of Wilmington, Delaware, in support of its capital campaign.
If the Delmar Public Library successfully secures a minimum of $100,000 through non-governmental sources before September 25, 2015, the Longwood Foundation will match the $100,000 dollar for dollar.
“The Delmar Public Library is very grateful for the opportunity provided by this challenge grant,” said Delmar Library Commission President Faith Krebs. “The Longwood Foundation was very supportive of the capital campaign and Library expansion project through their donation of $200,000 to the project. The addition of the challenge grant will reward the community for its donations and fundraising support of the capital campaign by matching local dollars with Longwood Foundation funding.”
