Library Renovation Project

In their FY16 budget, the Takoma Park City Council has provided the opportunity for significant improvements to the Library facility, by approving funds for detailed design development focused on options for renovation and possible building expansion.

About The Library

The Takoma Park Maryland Library is an independent municipal public library, and a department of the City of Takoma Park. It operates its own website, complete with tools to search the library’s catalog, access individual accounts and renew borrowed materials. You can also browse more than 2000 magazines and newspapers, search on-line reference databases, and access e-books, streaming audiobooks, and on-line language learning programs.

We have information about books, programs and other events on several web logs, as well as on the City calendar.

Library cards are free to anyone living, working or attending school in Takoma Park. Others must pay an annual non-resident fee.

Computer Center

The Library operates a 24-workstation Computer Center in the Community Center, and four additional workstations in the Senior Room.  There are also four workstations in the Library. A staff person is always available to help people in the Computer Center.

You must have a Takoma Park Library card or purchase a guest card to use the public computers.

The Computer Center is open Monday through Friday from 12 to 8 pm, and Saturday from 12 to 6 pm.

The Library and the Computer Center are open on Sundays from 12 to 5 pm.
