The Anne Arundel County Council made history Monday with its unanimous vote to nominate Deirdre Hendrick to the county library board of trustees. Hendrick could become the first openly transgender member of the board.

The Cape St. Claire resident still has to be approved by the Anne Arundel County Public Library Board of Trustees. That decision is expected to take place June 20.

If appointed, Hendrick would serve a three-year term.

“It is an honor to be nominated and I appreciate the commitment to diversity this shows,” Hendrick said. “I’m really excited about being part of the library board. I believe in libraries, they are a center for lifelong learning and one of the best investments a community can make.”

A library experiment inside Westfield Annapolis mall has been so successful officials have asked the county executive for $1.3 million to make the branch permanent.

Discoveries: The Library at the Mall location opened April 30, 2018 and was pitched as an opportunity to reach new library customers. The result was a smaller, more flexible location that focused less on books and more on programs such as group readings and bilingual story time for young children.

Westfield has offered a 12,000-square-foot space — four times bigger than the current location — and County Executive Steuart Pittman has included $1.3 million for it in his budget. It is one of two mall library locations in the state and attracts people from across the region.

“It’s perfect because it is in the mall,” said Lindsey Brooks of Washington, D.C., who was at the library on a recent day. “It is a good place for families to come in. The kids love it.”
