Our new central library will be a community gathering place.
The 1965 building in downtown Hagerstown will be fully renovated and expanded to more than 81,000 square feet to create a more comfortable, adaptable library for the community. Expected to reopen in Fall 2013, it will include:
- An attractive brick façade and inviting plaza that will enhance our county seat and provide a venue for outdoor concerts and events
- Separate, more comfortable areas for children, teens and adults
- More than a dozen group study rooms and tutorial spaces—currently, there are no quiet areas for study
- 40 computer stations, up from the current 12—for 1,200 visitors per day!
- Expanded, climate-controlled space to preserve and share the historic treasures in the Western Maryland Room collection
- Expanded event and community meeting space
- Updated and expanded infrastructure to support online and administrative services for seven branches, the bookmobile and the Western Maryland Regional
