In 1902, there were very few libraries open to the public. In Seaford, a group of women formed the Acorn Club as a vehicle through which they could improve their community. Their goal was to establish a public library. The first meeting of the Acorn Club was in a rented room to which each member brought a chair, a book, and a cup and saucer. They voted to start a library with books from their own homes as well as material borrowed from the traveling library available through the State Library in Dover. Each member served as librarian for a month until a part-time librarian was hired for $1 a week. And by 1909, there were 404 books in the library’s collection.

Service to Seaford’s surrounding rural community was met by one of the State’s first bookmobiles in 1912. Seaford Librarian Mary Hopkins purchased a touring car, stacked books on the car seats, and visited nearby farms loaning books and magazines.

The Seaford District Library continued to grow and was moved several times. The first move was from the room over Milligan’s store at the corner of King and Pine Street to the Acorn Club House on Hall Street in 1939. The library moved again to the old Henry White brick building on Pine Street until the completion of the present North Porter Street building in 1963. An addition to the building in 1987 almost doubled its size, adding more room for book shelves and offering a large meeting room for community use.

In 2003, the library boasted a collection of over 59,000 books, videos, tapes and magazines. Library services include outreach programs to local schools, daycares, nursing homes, and children’s organizations. In-house presentations and programs include story times, an annual children’s summer reading series, plus various children’s and adult’s programs. The library provides free word-processing capabilities, meeting space, and Internet accessibility to library members.

In December 2009, the library relocated to the current location of 600 N. Market St. Ext. doubling in size. The new facility has a computer training room, an exhibit/conference room, and a community multi-purpose room. A teen area was added and a children’s program room. The new building was named Seaford Library and Cultural Center. The library, however, remains incorporated as Seaford District Library, Inc.

They determine and adopt policies to govern the operation and program of the library; develop and oversee the budget; employ a Director; and actively support library legislation. The Board of Commissioners meet about ten times annually and these meetings are open to the public.

The use of cell phones in the library can often prove disruptive to patrons. In order to preserve the library’s mission and goals, we ask that all patrons observe the following courtesies inside the library building.

1. Cell phones should be set to ring quietly or to vibrate when entering the library.

2. Patrons must terminate their cell phone use when approaching the circulation desk, doing so insures prompt service. If the call is not terminated, patrons will be asked to step aside until the call is done.

3. Patrons using cell phones in the library will be asked to move away from the public computers or other patrons using the library’s services. Staff may allow patrons to use cell phones at the computers if the situation warrants it.

4. Patrons may not use cell phones at a volume that is disruptive to others.

5. Library staff may require that people engaged in cell phone conversations move to the front foyer near the entry doors or leave the building so as not to disturb others.

Enforcement of these rules for all cell phone users may take the form of any of the following actions:

Staff members are authorized to issue a verbal warning to patrons using a cell phone in the library in a manner that does not follow cell phone policy. If the offender refuses to cooperate, they will be asked to leave as quickly and quietly as possible. Acting abusively with verbal or physical threat or failing to cooperate with staff will result in immediate suspension of library privileges.

Interlibrary Loan

Please check the library catalog before requesting materials through ILL. Requests for items owned by Seaford District Library will not be processed unless items requested are more than 60 days overdue or lost on the circulation system. You may also search for and request items through Delaware Library Catalog

What is interlibrary loan (ILL)?

Because no library can own everything, Interlibrary Loan is a system that allows libraries to share resources with one another. The ILL Department locates a potential lending library and sends a request to borrow the item you seek. The lending library photocopies articles or checks out the material in the name of Seaford District Library. It then mails it to SDL for you to pick up and check out on your library card.

How do I order an ILL?

Interlibrary Loan requests can now be placed online via our Interlibrary Loan Form. Patrons are limited to 6 active requests (filled or pending) at any given time through ILL. You must have a valid Seaford District Library card and email address. It is highly encouraged for patrons to have an email address so that notices can be sent concerning their ILL request. If you do not have access to a computer, you can still place an ILL request at the library’s main desk.

What information do I need to place an ILL request?

For each item you request, the following information is needed: author’s name, title of book, and date of publication (if known). When requesting an article from a magazine or journal, you will need the title of the journal, article title, volume number, and pages in which the article appears.

Why am I having trouble placing my ILL request online?

If you are having trouble placing your ILL request and you see an error message, you will need to check on the status of your library account. There are several possibilities that could create a restriction. You could have overdue library materials, an outstanding fine of $5.00 or more, lost items, or an old address or phone number on your account. You will need to correct any restriction before you can place your ILL request.

How much does it cost?

The library charges a non-refundable $3.00 fee per item. Photocopies of articles are often provided free of charge or for a minimal fee. Fines for overdue ILL materials are $0.10 per day. If an item is lost or damaged, you are responsible for the replacement cost plus any additional processing fees assessed by the lending library. Failure to pick up an interlibrary incurs an additional $1.00 per item fee.

How long will it take?

The length of time involved in obtaining a loan or photocopy can vary considerably. We are unable to control the length of time that lending libraries take to send requested items. However, most materials can be obtained between two weeks and two months after your request is submitted. Be sure to submit requests well in advance of your need for them. You will be notified by telephone, e-mail, or by regular mail when the material arrives. Materials ready for pick up are held at the circulation desk for FOUR DAYS. If we are unable to fulfill your request, you will receive notification of the UNFILLED status by email.

How long do I get to keep the material?

The lending library determines the loan period and renewal policy for its materials. You can expect to keep most materials for two weeks. Interlibrary Loan is essential to the vitality of our resource sharing system. Borrowing materials from other institutions is a privilege. Occasionally, libraries will lend materials with certain restrictions, such as in-library use only, a shorter check-out period, or no renewal. Our library respects all restrictions placed on materials by the lending library. Users are expected to honor due dates and comply with any restrictions stipulated by the lending library. ILL relies on consideration and good will between libraries. When ILL materials are not returned promptly, it reflects poorly on the borrowing library and some lenders may stop lending materials to the offending library. Please return your ILL materials on or before the due date printed on your check out slip.

Where ILL books should be returned?

We encourage patrons to return ILL materials to the library location where they first picked them up so that paperwork can be cleared before they are returned to the lending library. Do not return ILL materials in the book drop. Please return them to the main desk.

How are books renewed?

The lending library decides on a case-by-case basis whether or not to renew. If you should need to make a renewal, you must contact the ILL office three days before the due date. We will make a request for renewal. You will then be contacted regarding the lending library's decision. Lending libraries will not grant renewals for overdue books. Any items not granted renewal must be returned by the due date or you will be subject to fines. Media materials (DVD & CD formats) are loaned for 2 weeks only with no renewals.

What kinds of materials are difficult or impossible to get?

Although we attempt to fulfill almost any request, the following types of materials are often difficult (or impossible) to obtain through Interlibrary Loan:

Recently published books (less than 6 months old)

Entire volumes or issues of periodicals

Reference works

Rare books or original manuscripts

Audiobooks, videos, DVDs or computer software

Some doctoral dissertations and masters theses

Genealogy materials are extremely difficult to acquire.

Some microfilm is available, but usually involves a lengthy wait times.

All Interlibrary Loan services are governed by the American Library Association Interlibrary Loan Code, national and regional agreements, and the Copyright Law (PL 94-553).

Notice Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

We welcome our customers’ suggestions for the purchase of new materials. Please use this form to suggest a title to be added to the Seaford Public Library collection.
