is on the east coast of USA, in the city of Delaware
. The building that hosts the library, has a great story
, but not everyone knows it. A very few of the many visitors (who love to fool around the shelves or sitting at one of the 200 computer stations) know Delmar’s origins.
Once upon a time , in the 40′s, president of “The new century club
” Ellis stated it was necessary to build a library (although it was only a tiny room at first) in Grove street. Same year, Delmar Library came to light. In 1970, the building started becoming larger and it required more and more employers and, eventually, the working hours dramatically increased.
the library is a sort of a Haymann family ‘memorial’. Mr Lyndall C. Haymann, his wife Virginia and their only child son Robert are one of the richest families of Delmar. Mr Haymann also instituted and endorsed a trust fundation, in order to improve library’s annual income. Thanks to his effort, the library has been subjected to many specialisations and improvements.
Every single library’s relevant member has to celebrate Haymann family
. The library’s meeting room is entitled to Haymann’s. Nevertheless, the Delmar library isn’t important to its citizens for these reasons only. It also offers many services: every person who wants to improve his knowledge can choose one of the 200.000 books available
, Visitors and students can also read magazines,newspapers, watch documentaries or movies. There is everything for each age. Even children have the opportunity to start learning their first letters or numbers. Moreover, in the library there are also fax,copier, scanner, available in the opening hours: monday-thursday 10-20 pm, friday 10-17 pm and saturday 10-14 pm.
