Celebrate your child or grandchild with a leaf on the
new Library "Learning Tree"

  Celebrate the children and grandchildren of greater Lewes by having their names and special messages engraved on a “Learning Tree” at the new Library.

One wall of the new Children’s Room will be dedicated to the colorful tree, whose branches will expand as more engraved leaves are added. Up to 300 leaves can be featured.

Engraved leaves may be purchased in three colors – gold, silver and bronze – for $300, $200 and $100 each, respectively. Reservations can be made now for the tree, which will be unveiled when the new Library opens in spring of 2016.

For more information, please click here or pick up a a flyer and order form at the Library.

Beers for Books - Every Pint Counts!
Now through March 31, 2016 at The Crooked Hammock

 Now thru March 2016, The Crooked Hammock will donate 25 cents from each pint of Crooked Hammock craft beer you buy. Cheers to our great neighbor for helping us out with our Capital Campaign!

Sorry, we're full!


In anticipation of our move into the new building, the Lewes Public Library will no longer be able to accept donations of books and other materials.

Once we have moved into the new Library in the Spring of 2016, we will resume acceptance of book donations. The Friends will have a shop in the new library to sell books and other items to pay for new books for the library and programs offered to our community.

For a list of other libraries and thrift that accept book donations, click here.

Thank you for your understanding!
