ROSEDALE, MD—The Baltimore County Public Library this week announced that the shelving at the Rosedale Branch will soon be updated. As a result, the branch and its Storyville will close for two weeks.
The branch will be closed from Monday, August 7 to Sunday, August 20, 2023. The last day for customers will be Saturday, August 5. Summer meals will end on Friday, August 4, and will not return upon the branch’s reopening. A list of other branches serving meals can be found online here.
The Rosedale Branch is located at 6105 Kenwood Avenue (21237). Customers who use this branch can go to neighboring branches in Essex, located at 1110 Eastern Boulevard (21221), or Parkville-Carney, located at 9509 Harford Road (21234), but can use any of BCPL’s 18 locations. Storyville inside the Woodlawn Branch, located at 1811 Woodlawn Drive (21207), is available during the Rosedale renovation. The library’s digital library is also available for customers around the clock.
Baltimore County Public Library officials say that the new shelving will give the space a more modern feel. The project is expected to cost $112,000 for materials and installation and will be paid for by the Library and Baltimore County Government’s capital funds.
The exterior book drop will remain open during the renovations, and items returned will be cleared from customers’ accounts. Customers also have the option to move their holds to another branch by calling the Rosedale Branch at 410-887-0512 or by changing it on their online account. Books that are left on the hold shelves at the start of renovations will be available for seven days after the branch reopens.
