Just In! White Oak Branch Closes on April 15, 2017 for Refresh!

What Is a "Refresh" and When Will It Take Place?
White Oak library will close to the public on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 6 PM so that it can be "refreshed."

So what exactly is a refresh?

A “refresh” project is a new Capital Improvement Program process approved by County Council and the County Executive to allow library buildings to get significant and timely updates without having to close for the lengthy time it takes for a full renovation. 

MCPL won the prestigious 2016 Top Innovator Award from the Urban Libraries Council (ULC) for our Library Refresh Program! Want to know more about this award?

So what types of updates will I see at White Oak?
  • Painting and re-carpeting of the public areas
  • Remodeling the lower level public restrooms including floors, walls, and toilet stall partitions
  • Adding 2 collaboration rooms (a table and seating for up to 4 people)
  • New furniture
  • Some new shelving

What nearby branches can I use while White Oak is closed?

How long will White Oak be closed?

White Oak Library will be closed for approximately 6 months.

Where will the White Oak staff work while the library is closed?

Staff will work at other branches temporarily until White Oak Library re-opens.

What will be the last day that I will be able to choose White Oak Library branch as a pick-up location for my holds?

The last day to choose WO as a hold location will be Saturday, March 25, 2017.

Will I be able to return books in the book drop after White Oak Library closes?

Yes, but only until Thursday, April 27, 2017. The book drop will be closed after that date and you should then return items to one of our other MCPL library branches.

Stay tuned to the White Oak Library blog for further details......
