Groundbreaking for new Berlin Branch Library

The Worcester County Commissioners cordially invite the public and members of the press to join them and the Library Board of Trustees to the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Berlin Branch Library. County and state officials will break ground at the site, which is located on Harrison Avenue in Berlin, on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 1:30 p.m.

The 12,000-square-foot Berlin Branch Library will be a two-story structure, designed to complement the historic architecture of the Town of Berlin. The library will have expanded children and teen reading areas, community meeting space, art gallery, and a local history room. Additional space will be provided for both public computers and laptops. A children’s porch and second-floor deck will allow visitors to take advantage of the natural setting. The site will also allow for the expansion of the community garden.

Project funding is being provided by the Worcester County Commissioners, Worcester County Library Foundation, and the County Library Capital Grant Program, Maryland State Department of Education, and Division of Library Development and Services. Project construction will get underway in June 2017 and should be complete by July 2018.
