Library's Response to the COVID-19 Outbreak

Librarian Reviewed Coronavirus COVID-19 Resources.

Anne Arundel County Public Library buildings opened July 6. Today's social distancing restrictions required us to completely change how we provide service to ensure the health and safety of our customers, staff and volunteers.

  • Library Hours: Monday - Thursday, 10 am - 7 pm; Friday and Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm.
  • Curbside Pickup is available Monday - Thursday, 3 - 6 pm; Friday & Saturday, 10 am - 12 pm.

Library staff have expanded their virtual program offerings on Facebook and Zoom. Please visit our library calendar for a list of all virtual programs.

Daily, library staff continue to add more titles to the systems’ extensive digital collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and databases available on the library’s website. Customers are encouraged to visit AACPL’s Cloud Library collection for the quickest access to the newest eBooks for all ages. Overdrive, Cloud, and RBDigital are now allowing up to 10 holds and 10 checkouts at a time.

Additionally, grant seekers and nonprofit organization employees will enjoy having temporary access to the Foundation Directory Online Essential normally only available in the Edgewater Library. The database provides access to information on nationwide grant makers and their grants through a database of over 92,000 foundations, corporate giving programs and grant making public charities in the U.S.
