The Lewes Public Library is the heart of the Lewes community and reflects the vibrant and welcoming nature of its residents. We are the community's central resource for exploration, reflection, and learning, offering access to books and other circulating materials, classes, services, and programs, all of which are free of charge.
As an independent nonprofit library, the Lewes Public Library receives only half of its funding each year from government services. The other half must be raised by the library annually. That amount fluctuates between $300,000 - $400,000. Our generous donors are essential in meeting that fundraising goal and supporting the library's operations. Your gift will help us serve our community by providing access to information resources, cultural opportunities, and recreational activities for all age groups.
Community support is critical to our continued growth and vitality as a public resource. You can make a difference and help ensure a bright future for generations to come by making a gift to the Library.
