Potomac Library to close for Refresh

Montgomery County Public Libraries Announces Closing Date for Potomac Library Refresh Project 

The Potomac Library, located at 10101 Glenolden Drive, Potomac, will close at 6 p.m. on May 22 to undergo interior improvements under the Montgomery County Public Libraries’ (MCPL) award-winning Library Refurbishment initiative. 

The project will include the replacement of flooring, new shelving, a new service desk, painting, new furniture, and a redesigned children’s area. Work will also be performed to bring the building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The library will be closed for approximately eight to ten months. 

“Physical construction for the refresh project at Potomac will begin in July; we are closing ahead of the construction start date to complete the internal reorganization of collections and shelving,” said MCPL Director Anita Vassallo. “We look forward to resuming operations at the branch in early 2023, and hope customers will access services at nearby branches and continue to use our website while the facility is undergoing the refresh process.”
