Discoveries FAQs

Yes! Discoveries: the Library at the Mall opened inside the Westfield Annapolis Mall in 2018 in what is now Blank Slate. In 2020, Discoveries officially became the 16th branch of the Anne Arundel County Public Library. We are now open in our larger beautiful space across from Crate and Barrell courtyard. 

Our collection is curated to bring you the most recent titles in books, DVDs, magazines, and audiobooks.

Discoveries does not have public restrooms available. There are two readily available nearby. One, near Stoney River and the other in the hallway before Auntie Anne's Pretzels.
