May 11, 2011|By Mary Gail Hare | The Baltimore Sun

The Towson Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library system has undergone a $201,000 makeover. The work included installation of pendant light fixtures and new shelving in the fiction, magazine, juvenile and teens areas. The fiction area also boasts new carpeting. The project, which was completed at more than $20,000 under its estimated $222,000 cost, also created space for two small study rooms. A grant from the Maryland State Department of Education's Division of Library Development and Services paid about half the renovations cost.Officials will host a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 11:15 a.m. Thursday at the 320 York Road location. Information: 410-887-6196.
