Open House today for Seaford Library

By Anne Nesbitt

The new Seaford Library and Cultural Center will officially open to the public on December 10. Today, Thursday, Nov. 12, from 4 to 8 p.m. everybody in the community is invited to see inside and walk through the new building located at 600 North Market Street Extended in the Ross Business Park. The books will not be there but the shelving and furniture will be in place and the new building may be explored. The building is at the corner of Market Street Extended and Ross Station Road. Because of the extensive preparation involved with packing and moving the contents of the present library on Porter Street that building will be closed permanently starting at the end of hours on Saturday, Nov. 14. Anyone holding a library card is welcome to use the library facilities in any town in Sussex County.

Also, there will be a bookmobile located in the Save A Lot parking lot off Stein Highway at Hall Street. It will be there from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, Nov. 19 and 20 and Dec. 3 and 4. The Friends of the Library, an organization that provides enormous assistance to the Library and has given extensively to the cost of the new building, is selling poinsettias for Christmas. Orders may be placed through November 23 with Connie Halter at 323 Hall Street in Seaford. Money must accompany the order. Plants are in five-inch pots in red, white or pink colors. The price is $6 per plant or four for $20. The Friends have been given special permission to use the new building on Dec. 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., for people to pick-up their plants.
