We have a condo nearby and spend a lot of time in Bethany. The library is a great place to spend down time. The staff is quite helpful and there is a lot material to brouse.

If you are in the mood for unpleasant service and little to no selection, this is the library for you. The least helpful library in Delaware.

This library is wonderful. It has the usual books and magazines. It also lends DVDs. It is staffed by the nicest, knowledgeable, helpful people.

I know these ladies are volunteers but can they please be a little bit friendly? Apparently, they don't like the non-locals visiting. They are cold and very "clinical" in conversation. I love visiting the library, but I feel like I'm not wanted and I feel like I'm walking on eggshells at this one. Perhaps a pep talk? Smile, it's not... More

The library is located on a quiet street in Bethany and offers and nice place to stop and relax and stay cool on a hot day with young children in tow or a quiet spot for a rainy day.

We are a small town, but with a big town library. Beautiful building and dedicated staff. The town should be very proud to have such a facility.

This library presents just the right setting for choosing books, DVD's or CD books. It's cheery and sedate at the same time. I think much of this is due to the excellent staff. The individuals at the checkout desk are friendly and efficient simultaneously. I like going there whether to check at a book on CD or to just sit... More
