Here's how you can!

Honor or memorialize family and friends with an engraved tribute paver at the new Library. Pavers will be installed within the "allee" - a shaded walkway across from the Library entrance that is the centerpiece of the grounds.

Sponsor a Solar Panel 

The new Library has 540 solar panels which are expected to generate ALL the energy needs to heat and cool our new, larger Library. Combined with passive lighting, LED lights, and a new VRF system, solar makes the new Library one of the greenest, most cost-efficient buildings in the greater Lewes region.

You now have the opportunity to sponsor one or more of our array of solar panels. Click here for a brochure.

 

 

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 up to 300 leaves are added.

Engraved leaves may be purchased in three colors – gold, silver and bronze – for $300, $200 and $100 each, respectively. For more information, please click here to download an order form.
