Officials from the Anne Arundel County Public Library (AACPL) today announced the system will begin offering curbside pick up of library materials starting Monday, June 8. All library locations will open for limited indoor service starting June 15, except the new Michael E. Busch Annapolis Library which will open in July.  

Library staff will offer curbside pick up from 10 am – 4 pm, Monday-Saturday at all locations. Starting June 15, branches will be open for limited walk ins from 10 am to 7 pm, Monday-Thursday and from 10 am to 5 pm, Friday and Saturday. Libraries are not open for Sunday service during the summer.  More information.

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.

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. 

We deeply regret having to extend this closure but the health and safety of our customers, staff and volunteers is paramount. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the library soon.
