Library Story

The Elizabeth Garnsey Delavan Library was built in 2017, continuing the legacy of the former Lodi Whittier Library, which was built a century before.  Ten years in the making, the new site on South Main Street serves as more than just a library--it's a community center, a gathering place, and a spark for that has helped to grow the Village of Lodi.

The Elizabeth Garnsey Delavan Library is home to a wealth of local and historical resources.  Stop in to learn more, meet the locals, and borrow a book!
