The Delmont Gardens Branch Library, renovated and expanded in 2005, provides separate areas for adults and young people, with reference desks and study areas, spaces for exhibits and displays, and comfortable reading areas which invite patrons to browse new materials.

Originally constructed in 1985, the Delmont Gardens Branch Library has been expanded and renovated from the original 7,555-square-foot building. This 19,000-square-foot Library includes a covered drive-through at the entrance and a beautifully landscaped courtyard and houses over 100,000 books, videos, DVDs, audiobooks and CDs. The design of the branch features a dramatic, expansive arch. This motif is repeated in the finely handcrafted millwork at each of the service desks.

The facility contains a large meeting room, capable of holding 100 people, which can be split into two separate rooms, each with a kitchenette. The Children's Services area features a special storytime room for programming.

Additional parking is available for Library patrons at the BREC Longfellow Park, 5201 Longfellow Drive.

Free wireless Internet access is available at this branch.
