Provinces library to close temporarily

The Provinces branch library in Severn will close next week for recarpeting.

The 12,000-square-foot library, located in the Severn Square Shopping Center at Route 175 and Ridge Road, opened in 1986 and is one of the busiest in the West County area.

More than 26,000 books and other materials are borrowed each month.

No materials will be due back while the building is being renovated from Feb. 22 to 27, though the book drop-off slot outside can be used and patrons can return books to any other county library.

Other nearby libraries include the Odenton branch, in the 1200 block of Odenton Road, and the Maryland City branch, in the Maryland City Shopping Plaza on Route 198.

Both are open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Crofton branch, located in the Crofton Centre shopping area at Route 3 and Davidsonville Road, is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
