Ten years ago, a study showed that the Elkridge library needed to be more than twice its current size in order to meet the needs of the community.Then five years ago, a feasaibility study determined that renovation of the existing building would not be an option. Aside from it being too small, the branch doesn't have the classroom or meeting room space necessary or even a heating and air conditioning system that works properly. In that time, a new, state-of-the-art library was built in Ellicott City and renovations are under way to double the size of the Savage library.

Some restaurants are like department stores. Their menus tend to offer something for almost everyone. Others are more like boutiques, offering a more specialized type of cuisine. One such place is SushiQ on Washington Boulevard in Elkridge. Rather than taking the Pan-Asian route that seems to be so popular these days, SushiQ owners Jennifer and Kenny Qiu provide fare that is virtually all Japanese.  Here, you won't find your future dinner entrée performing as part of a floor show.
