Branch Events & Announcements

  • New Berlin Branch Groundbreaking

    The Worcester County Commissioners cordially invite the public and members of the press to join them and the Library Board of Trustees to the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Berlin Branch Library.

    The 12,000-square-foot Berlin Branch Library will be a two-story structure, designed to complement the historic architecture of the Town of Berlin. The library will have expanded children and teen reading areas, community meeting space, art gallery, and a local history room. Additional space will be provided for both public computers and laptops. A children's porch and second-floor deck will allow visitors to take advantage of the natural setting. The site will also allow for the expansion of the community garden.

    Project funding is being provided by the Worcester County Commissioners, Worcester County Library Foundation, Humphreys Foundation, Town of Berlin, and the County Library Capital Grant Program, Maryland State Department of Education, and Division of Library Development and Services. Project construction will get underway in June 2017 and should be complete by July 2018.

    Individuals with disabilities who may need special accommodations are invited to contact Public Information Officer Kim Moses at 410-632-1194. For more information about the Berlin Branch Library project, contact Library Director Jennifer Ranck at 410-632-2600.

    Wednesday, May 24, 2017 - 2:00 PM

    Location: Berlin Branch
    Winner of the 2013 Silver Medal for the General Nonfiction Florida Book Award, The Earhart Enigma tells the exciting and dramatic fate of Amelia Earhart as told through eye-witness accounts, interviews, archives and documents never before in print. In 1937, Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Frank Noonan, vanished as the world watched. Speculation ran rampant, and most assumed that they had crash-landed into the ocean and perished. But did they? With more than thirteen years of painstaking international research, Dave Horner brings into focus Earhart’s final days.
