Meet Damascus

Damascus Library is located in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve, an initiative created in 1980 to preserve farmland and rural communities.  The branch started as a bookmobile stop (1952-1973), then moved to a storefront in the Damascus Centre shopping plaza (1973-1990).  Its current location at 9701 Main Street is in a building designed to invoke a farm barn. We share our building with the Damascus Senior Center, and on our grounds are a daycare center and the Damascus Heritage Society Museum.

Damascus is known for its close-knit community and small-town feel.  In fact, it was listed as #31 in Money magazine’s September 2015 article “America’sTop 50 Best Places to Live.”
