    September is National Library Card Sign Up Month.  To encourage residents who do not have a library card to sign up, anyone who gets a new library card during the month of September will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.  Make sure you have the "smartest" card in your wallet! More information on getting a library card can be found here.

    The Wilmington Memorial Library is sponsoring Food for Fines during the month of August to benefit the Wilmington Food Pantry. Patrons may have their library fines cleared by bringing a nonperishable food donation to the library. In the spirit of the program, we ask that the estimated value of the donation be close to the amount of the fine. Those who do not have fines are also encouraged to donate to the Food Pantry. Here is a  list of items needed by the Food Pantry.
