Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) has announced that the newly renovated Gaithersburg Library will celebrate its Grand Re-opening on Saturday, January 4, beginning at 9:30 a.m., with the ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. County Executive Ike Leggett and other elected officials will join MCPL and Department of General Services representatives and local residents to mark the re-opening of the library located at 18330 Montgomery Village Ave.
Special programs, presented by the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County, Inc. and the Friends of the Library, Gaithersburg Chapter, will be held throughout the day. There also will be entertainment, refreshments and tours of the building.
“Now that the Interim Branch at Lakeforest Mall has closed, staff will be busy over the next two months making the move across the street, organizing and placing all the materials in the new building, overseeing installation of the electronic equipment and furniture -- ensuring the building is perfect for the re-opening, “ said MCPL Director Parker Hamilton. “This is a busy but exciting time for everyone associated with the Gaithersburg Library.”
Updated announcements about the re-opening activities will be posted on the Gaithersburg Library page website as the day draws closer.
