2020 Census

2020 Census Worcester Everyone Counts April 1 - July 31

It's time for the 2020 Census!  Worcester County Library is proud to be a part of the Worcester County Complete Count Committee’s education and outreach effort.  In 2010 only 59% of the residents of Worcester County completed the census survey - this was the lowest response in the State of Maryland.  Everyone living in the continental US, Puerto Rico and the Island Areas of the US is mandated by the US Constitution (Article 1, Section 2) to complete a census survey every 10 years.

Effective 5 p.m. Friday, March 13, Worcester County Library will close all Library locations, and these closures will remain in effect until March 30.

We regret to announce that the library will be closed from March 14 to March 29 due to COVID-19 health concerns. Governor Hogan has asked that Marylanders move from containment to mitigation. In order best to protect you and our employees, the decision to close, though painful, seems the best and wisest course. The library is fine free, so no fines will accrue during this period.  Any held items will remain waiting for our re-opening.

All Worcester County Library locations will be closed from March 14 with a tentative reopening date of March 30 due to COVID-19 health concerns.

This has been a difficult decision to make and we are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  The library is fine free, so no fines will accrue during this period.  Any held items will remain waiting for our re-opening.

The Library’s Digital Branch is always available!

Using our Digital Resources

While our physical locations are closed, you can still use the Worcester County Library with a computer, tablet, eReader, or smartphone. Your Library account also gives you access to digital and streaming media for kids, teens, and adults.

Book returns closed to assist in efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19

Book returns have been closed to assist in efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.  Please don't worry about overdue books or returning items - any physical materials currently checked out will have their due dates extended until we reopen. And any holds that were placed will be waiting for you to pick up when we reopen, too.  We encourage you to visit our digital resources to explore books, movies, shows, research tools, and more to download and stream for the entire family.  Thank you for your understanding.
