About Us

Established in 1973, the Delaware City Library is a contract library of the New Castle County Library System and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We primarily serve Delaware City residents, although we have visitors from the entire state of Delaware. In 2003, we moved from our location on Clinton Street to our current location on the corner of 5th and Bayard Sts.

The library is open forty hours per week.  It is located in a building owned by the City of Delaware City and also houses the Delaware City Community Center.  The library is governed by a Board of Directors. For a list of current board members, please see our contact page.

We have nine computers and a meeting room available for public use, as well as a collection of over 24,000 items available for checkout. We also offer a variety of programs for children, teens, and adults. Check out our event pages to see what’s coming up!
