The Chevy Chase Library will be closed from Monday, December 10 through Tuesday, January 1 for repair, replacement and renovation of the mechanical piping distribution system used to support heating and cooling in the building.
Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) has announced that the normal three-week due dates for materials checked out the weeks of November 19 26, and December 3 have been extended, so no materials will be due during the closing.
The book drop will remain open for book returns while the building is closed. However, Chevy Chase customers are encouraged to use other MCPL branches for checking out books and other materials, returning materials, and using the catalog and internet computers. Electronic access to the MCPL website will not be affected by the temporary closure.
Customers are asked to check the MCPL website -- www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library -- on January 1 for the opening time on the 2nd.
