Thanks, Howard County Library System, for the sneak preview of the newly renovated Glenwood Branch of HCLS!
It's light, airy, open, and gorgeous.
Most importantly? It's welcoming. It makes you want to stay, to browse, to connect, and to learn.
There's a dedicated space for teens, a Builders' Barn for children, and all kinds of incredible resources from a Recording Booth to a Laser Cutter Engraver, and a Digital Memory Station (need to digitize old VHS tapes?).
There's a Large Format Printer, two 3D Printers, a Button Maker, and tinker boxes and drawers filled with Legos and duct tape and all kinds of things to use to build and create and play.
There's also a small café and a glorious patio that will surely be a coveted spot during good weather.
The Glenwood Branch of HCLS reopens to the public this Saturday. If you can't make it then, you'll definitely want to make it a destination soon.
Here's a link to more photos (taken by HCLS Multimedia Production Specialist Geoffrey Baker) - they're well worth a click to see so much more of what's available and they're gorgeous!
Congratulations to our very favorite library system and to everyone along the way who made this happen!
