There will be a new library opening in Wilmington in the near future. The state is set to acquire a site soon for the new building.

According to the Delaware Business Times a brand new library will be set to open  at 3905 N. Market St. in Wilmington.

The site of the new library is the home to Sport Car Service, and automobile dealerships that caters to Saab and Subarus. The site will be a total of 1.3 acres.

According to the Delaware Business Times the “Construction of the new library will be funded through funds secured in the state’s Fiscal Years 2022-2023 bond bills as well as allocations from the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).” The plan will cost $22 million.

The Wilmington Public Library has welcomed Dolly Parton and KRS-One recently and was award the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. This award is the top honor given to libraries.

Check out Dolly Parton dropping in and playing a few songs here.  Dolly stopped by to promote her Imagination Library.

The new library location will not replace the library located 3400 N. Market St. located right up the road from the new build site. The current North Wilmington Library is undergoing a $6 million renovation right now.

The Delaware Department of State says the libraries will coexist and will provide complimentary services to Wilmington residents.

DQ Announces 6 New Blizzard Flavors In Delaware

The temperature outside lets us know it’s not Fall just yet, but DQ’s recent announcement might ease the transition.  DQ has announced 6 new Blizzard Flavors in Delaware for the fall menu.   These are limited time only, like most seasonal menu items.  They’re coming at a time when it’s still warm enough to enjoy a cold treat, before the dreaded cold winter (for some of us).

If you’re not familiar with a Dairy Queen Blizzard, here’s what it is, according to Wikipedia:

A popular Dairy Queen item is the Blizzard, which is soft-serve mechanically blended with mix-in ingredients such as sundae toppings and/or pieces of cookies, brownies, or candy. It has been a staple on the menu since its introduction in 1985, a year in which Dairy Queen sold more than 100 million Blizzards.

My kids love a Blizzard.  They also love the “flip” they do before serving it to you.  If you don’t know about the “flip”, it’s when the cup is flipped over before serving to prove it’s thickness.  If anything spills out, the Blizzard is free.

So, without further ado, check out the list of Dairy Queen’s 6 new Blizzard flavors in Delaware for Fall.  Thanks to the folks at Eat This Not That for the info.
