“Well Stocked and Helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

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.

“unfriendly and no depth of collection”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

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.

“Library Ladies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

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 so bad, you live at one of the best places on earth!
