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.

Together with a proposal to build 143 townhouses at nearby Westover Glen along the winding, two-lane road, which has been designated "scenic" by Howard County, the projects are raising concerns among residents who fear increased traffic and school crowding. The two developments are close to the growing Emerson community in a once lightly populated area marked by large estates, farms and country roads.
