 Sorry, we're full!

As of June 30, the Lewes Public Library will no longer be able to accept donations of books and other materials.

The storage room has filled for the Fall Book Sale, which will be the final book sale before we move into the new Library building.

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.

Thank you for your understanding!
