Emceed by Campaign Committee Chair and Library Trustee Emeritus Dennis Forney, the ceremony featured comments from Governor Jack Markell, Senator Ernie Lopez, Representative Steve Smyk, and Mayor Ted Becker on the importance of the library to the community and the value of the support provided by the City of Lewes. Attended by more than 100 library supporters, the groundbreaking marks the formal start of a 14-month journey towards the opening of a 21st century library to support the Lewes community for the next 50 years.
