Was able to go to Story Time with my kids while on vacation. The library staff was fantastic. The kids department is full of books, puzzles, games, computers, puppets, and all the dvds you could want to check out. Great facility!

Tucked away from the main-drag in Bethany is the South Coastal Library. Quiet, modern, well-used, well-endowed with an ever expanding collection. Professional and friendly full-time staff, with lots of retiree volunteers. Locals and tourists welcomed.
