There is an exciting new look in the children's area at the Mountain Road Community Library! Thanks to a generous donation from the Lake Shore Democratic Club through the Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation, we are the second branch of Anne Arundel County Public Library to introduce an Early Learning Center for children ages birth through five. Following in Brooklyn Park Community Library's footsteps, we have added interactive panels to our children's collection bookshelf ends that are fun to play with and inspire learning.
