VOLUNTEER TO WORK AT THE LIBRARY! We are looking for volunteers to help staff the library.  You can help as little or as much as you are available.

HISTORY

The Delaware Township Library was started in 1981 by a group of dedicated residents, to provide a local library for residents of the township.  The library was located in the meeting room of the Delaware Township Building.  Shelves were constructed and housed a collection of donated and purchased books.  In 1983 the library moved to the building adjacent to the Township building, because it had outgrown the space in the township building.  In 2007 the library moved to its current location at 106 Connors Way at Akanec Park, Route 739.  The library houses a collection of adult fiction including many bestsellers and large print books, non-fiction and biographies, children’s fiction and non-fiction, in addition to videos and DVD’s and books-on-tape.  Currently there are more than 6,500  volumes, both print and non-print, available.  Our collection is acquired through purchases and donations from residents.  There is also a computer workstation with internet access. In the summer, we have a wonderful screened porch, with a view of the lake, where you can relax and read. 

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Delaware Township Library is to provide the residents in the area with the varied reading material and access to print and non-print information. 

MEMBERSHIP

Library membership is open to all township residents, free of charge.  Non-residents may join for a nominal one-time fee of $5.00.  Books and non-print materials may be borrowed for two weeks and may be renewed twice as long as there are no holds pending.  The library receives limited financial assistance from Delaware Township and is funded by donations and fund-raisers.  We host local authors for book-signings, story hours and movies for children, and participate in the annual Harvest Fest each fall.

DELAWARE  TOWNSHIP LIBRARY ASSOCIATION

The Delaware Township Library Association is an incorporated non-profit organization of volunteers, dedicated to maintaining and operating the library.  The board meets monthly, the second Saturday, at 10:00 AM.  We are always looking for new volunteers to help staff the library. 

If you are interested in volunteering please call:  570-828-2781.
