If you believe Annapolis needs a new public library, mark your calendar to attend a meeting at the branch on West Street on March 5 at 7 p.m.
As libraries across Anne Arundel County move toward modernization, they will host a series of town hall meetings to talk about their needs and answer questions from the public.
Skip Auld, executive director for Anne Arundel County Public Libraries (AACPL), will discuss the need for expanded hours, technology upgrades and the new Annapolis and Glen Burnie libraries.
Auld will seek approval this year from Anne Arundel County Government for a new, two-level, 65,000-square-foot Annapolis Regional Library.
“After submitting this request each of the past six years, we believe it’s time to build a new library in the Annapolis area. Approval of this project will signify a commitment on the part of the County to modernize its public libraries,” Auld said in the release.
Auld will also talk about reasons and remedies for AACPL’s shortcomings compared to other Maryland libraries, according to a release.
