Long Branch Library Renovations Completed
The Montgomery County Public Libraries has completed renovations to their Long Branch Library, part of their countywide Library Refurbishment Initiative.
As of Monday January 25th, “Holds to Go!”, the Library’s contactless pickup service, and the library telephone service, have resumed operations at Long Branch Library.
The Long Branch Library can be reached at 240-777-0910.
The Long Branch Library had closed for renovations in March. The Long Branch Library renovations cost approximately $4 million, according to a written statement from MCPL.
Renovations included redoing the existing restrooms, construction of a new family restroom, new children’s and teen’s areas, a new group study room, and an entirely new service desk. On the second floor of the library, crews installed new seating areas, a new water Water Bottle Filling Station, and additional outlets for mobile device charging. New exterior signs were installed and accessibility improvements were made at the Library entrance.
In a written statement, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich said, “Our libraries are community anchors and the impressive improvements transform this into a modernized, beautiful facility for our Long Branch residents to enjoy.”
The Long Branch Library is located at the corner of Garland Avenue and Walden Road, just west of Long Branch, which feeds into Sligo Creek, the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers, and eventually the Atlantic Ocean via the Chesapeake Bay.
