Free COVID-19 Testing


If you have symptoms or are sick with COVID-19 or another contagious illness, please do not visit the library to pick up your test kit. Contact your health care provider instead.

We’ve partnered with the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) to give you the peace of mind that comes from having a rapid COVID-19 test kit at your fingertips, to use in the future if you think you or a member of your household has or may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.

DPH has given us these kits to pass on to our library community so you can test in the privacy of your home and have results in just 10 minutes. Plus, there’s no need for you to return samples to the library or a lab. So, come in as soon as possible to pick up your free kit.

But remember, if you have symptoms of COVID-19 please do not visit the library. Instead, call your health care provider or locate a testing site by visiting If your test result comes back positive, you should stay home, and visit for your next steps.

Help keep Delawareans safe — and the things you enjoy open.
COVID-19 cases are still a significant concern. Testing is one of the best ways to identify them and stop potential outbreaks. And, when all of us do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we do more to make sure we stay the course to getting back to normal — and to keep things like our library open to serve you.

Don’t forget …
Our library offers you a lot of great, free resources beyond books and use of our computers. These include:
• Technology that can be borrowed, such as Chromebooks and Wi-Fi hot spots
• On-site kiosks, when you need a quiet space to have a job interview, a telehealth visit, or a similar appointment
• Job and career-development resources
• Appointments with a social worker from the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, to assist with food benefits, Medicaid, long-term nursing care, child care, home-energy support, and more

If you need a library card, you can get one at no cost by visiting this site or stopping by the library.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
