Most public libraries in Sussex County will be closed May 2 for the annual Delaware/Maryland Library Association Conference.

The professional associations of both states share resources and expenses for this multi-state continuing education event.

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 for the four county-owned libraries and 11 independent libraries.

Concurrent sessions throughout the day will be provided by the nationally recognized library and community leaders.

Libraries will reopen at their regularly scheduled times on May 3.
