Sussex County libraries to close Thursday, Sept. 27 for staff development day


All public libraries in Sussex County will be closed Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, for the annual Sussex County Library Staff Development Day.

Staff from all 14 public libraries throughout Sussex County will meet at Delaware Technical & Community College in Georgetown for the 22nd annual conference, a daylong session to learn about a variety of topics, including e-books, virtual collections, children’s programs and public space safety.

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 three County-owned libraries and 11 independent libraries.

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

Libraries will reopen at their regularly scheduled times on Friday, September 28, 2012. For more information on library hours, contact your local library.
