This is a list of Delaware Public Libraries alphabetized by county, then the library.

 

In addition to local historical material, public libraries often subscribe to online research databases which patrons can use for free. Some of these can be used from your home with a valid library account. For information on which databases to look for that may help you in your genealogy research as well as tips for onsite visits, see How To Use Your Public Library for Genealogy Research.
