Delmar Public Library Receives Upgrades Donation

Posted: Updated:

DELMAR, Del. - Some good news for the Delmar Public Library. The Arthur W. Perdue Foundation awarded the facility with a $15,000 check to make upgrades.

Improvements include increasing the size by 10,000 square feet, buying smart boards, and adding a tutoring room. Officials hope that these will help bring more people in. An already apparent pull? Internet connection. "It's very popular with the members of the town and they come in to apply for jobs and even for entertainment, just to use the computers because they don't have them at home," said Susan Upole, Director of the Delmar Public Library.

The new facility is expected to be complete by April of 2015.
