Ask a Librarian

Ask us, anytime!

Ask a Librarian Delaware is operated by Delaware library staff who can help you online, just as we do in person, from the convenience of your computer or cell phone.  You can ask us through email and text.  Please contact us and we will get back to you, whether it’s about your library account or item, or for research on a particular topic.  We hope to hear from you soon! We appreciate your service and use of our libraries, in person and online!  

Bear Library opened in 1998 and immediately became the busiest library in the state of Delaware. It re-opened its doors in January 2013 after undergoing a multimillion-dollar, state-of-the-art renovation.

As the unofficial town center for the Bear community, our 25,000 square foot facility provides more than 135,000 items for loan including audio, video, magazines, e-books, databases, and print books. Additionally we offer library programs for all ages and interests, including ESL and GED programs, public access computers, study rooms, and meeting spaces for nonprofit community groups and organizations.
