Delaware County Memory is an ongoing collaborative project between libraries, governmental offices, local historical societies, and other local archives throughout Delaware County. The project is administered by the Community Library in Sunbury. It is sponsored in part by the Community Library Foundation and Delaware County Foundation. The goals of the project are
  • to make local materials accessible that support the information needs of historians and genealogists everywhere
  • to support the endeavors of students and educators studying Delaware County and its townships
  • to preserve aging materials that document the settlement and development of Delaware County

If you would like to make a donation, volunteer, or have items you would like to have included in Delaware County Memory, please email the library at or call 740-965-3901.
