  • If you have questions or need assistance, you may call the library at 302-645-2733. If you are unable to get through while we are open, it is because all lines are busy. Please call back or send us an email (lewes.library@gmail.com). Please do not leave a message as messages are not retrieved.
  • Patrons can place a hold on items through the Delaware Library Catalog (dlc.lib.de.us). Once we receive your item, depending on how you requested to be notified, you will receive an email, text or phone call that the item is ready for pick-up.
  • You can access online resources, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, Magazines, and more on the Delaware Division of Libraries eMedia page – all for free!
  • If you need something printed, please email it to lewes.library@gmail.com. We will print it for you and put it in an envelope with your name on it. You may pick it up during lobby pick-up hours. There is no charge for printing but donations (cash or check) are appreciated to help cover the costs. Wireless printing from home also is available. Instructions on how to do that may be found here.
  • The library is NOT accepting any donated materials. Please do NOT put donations in the book drop or leave them outside the building.

We will post updates on our website and social media including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
