WILMINGTON — Gov. John Carney on Tuesday announced that the state has entered into a sales agreement for a new Wilmington Library.
The site, 3905 N. Market St., is the current location of a vintage Saab dealership, a news release said. The construction of the library, which will include ample land for site development and increased parking, will be funded through approximately $22 million secured in the 2022-23 bond bills and American Rescue Plan Act monies.
State librarian Dr. Annie Norman led the initiative to procure the site, working closely with state legislators, leadership at the existing Wilmington Library and other community advocates.
