The Claymont Library opened on October 26, 2013 in a beautiful new state-of-the-art facility with features including a drive up window, meeting and study rooms, increased and updated technology, dedicated Teen and Children’s areas, a walking trail and an outdoor pergola. It was previously housed in a section of the Claymont Community Center since 1988 and founded by the Woman’s Club of Claymont in the Old Stone School in 1929. The library serves as a cornerstone of the Claymont Community, which is experiencing a renaissance.
