Most public libraries in Sussex County will be closed Thursday, May 8, 2014, so staff can attend the annual Delaware Library Association/Maryland Library Association (DLA/MLA) Conference in Ocean City, Md.

Libraries in Sussex County strive to provide residents with first-rate library service. To support this mission, the Sussex County Department of Libraries provides continuing education and professional staff development. In addition to classes, the conference provides an opportunity for library professionals to network, learn from one another and share their expertise.

The DLA/MLA Conference offers concurrent educational sessions throughout the day that will be provided by local, regional and national library and community leaders.

Sussex County libraries will reopen at their regular times on Friday, May 9, 2014. Please check your local library regarding this closure and hours of operation.
