What is your version of the Delaware Dream?
We all have dreams about the future — for ourselves, our families, and our communities. The dream of Delaware Libraries is to help our state become an even more vibrant and prosperous place where all dreams are realized.

Don’t be surprised if your local librarian approaches you and asks, What do you geek? What is the topic that fascinates you, what are you passionate about? Whatever your passion, whatever you “geek,” the library supports it. Your librarians are revealing their own style of geekiness to encourage you to share yours. What better way to relieve stress and beat the economy than to unleash our passions?

Delaware Libraries and their partners facilitate transformational opportunities for you and others to explore your passions and maximize your unique talents (whatever you geek!) and achieve your Delaware Dream. Delaware libraries support your interests with millions of books, movies, music, magazines, newspapers, Internet access, programs, workshops, community collaborations, and more! And with your computer or smart phone, you can access library services from wherever you are ­whenever the mood strikes!

Let’s all put our expertise and ingenuity to work for our future! And let’s all have lots of fun while we’re at it!
