Vision: The Daleville Community Library has taken its place in a growing community and is a cornerstone to the future. Daleville was without a library for many years, and because of the effort of local citizens, the dream of a new facility has come to fruition. We hope that people of all ages will walk through the doors of the facility and be impressed with the design, equipment, services and technology. Our focus is to have the best library possible and to be certain that every citizen who wants access, gains it. History: Ground breaking for the new library began in 1996 after local couple Bob and Imy Taylor donated the land and construction of the building totalling $700,000. In addition, the couple donated $200,000 in an endowment fund for the library. Daleville briefly had a satellite branch of the Muncie library. While residents wanted a library to call their own, they did not want to pay for it in taxes, but wanted it funded by donations. The Daleville Community Library opened its doors on June 1, 1998. Since then, more than 1,000 families have enjoyed the benefits of library membership. The library provides services to readers, regardless of where they live for only $15 a year, and unlike virtually every other library, it does not receive any tax dollars. Instead, the library raises funds through successful activities such as an annual golf outing, dinners, the sale of book bags, patron membership fees of $15.00 a year, granite tablet inscriptions, memory donations and the countless generous donations from patrons.
