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

Why buy one book when it's easy enough to buy 10? The book sale is a part of our annual visit to Bethany Beach -- great selection of current and older titles. Wonderful library with terrific volunteers.

My children use to love to come and get their summer reading books there and loved the atomsphere where they could escape and scope the selection of books throughout the children section.

We always go to the library when we visit Bethany Beach. You can join for $10 for one month. This allows you to check out 2 items at a time, use the internet, and read the newspapers and magazines. It's very cool inside, has lots of free parking, and you can ride your bike there if you rent a place... More
