Thank you for your patience while we undergo construction to bring you exciting improvements to the first floor of our Central Library in Denton!
The Board of Library Trustees for Caroline County is pleased to announce that the Central Library first floor renovation will begin January 3, 2023. It is being funded by a Maryland State Library Capital grant with the Library Board providing the local match with funds donated to the Library from John Hargreaves, one of the founders of the Caroline County Public Library back in 1961.
The Central Library was built in 1971 and was last significantly improved in 1995 along with a 4,547 square foot addition. The first floor contains the majority of Caroline County’s main library services for our residents. This project will replace heat pump units at the end of their useful life, improve lighting, upgrade the emergency fire alarm system, enhance electrical capacity for increased technology, provide a highly requested family bathroom adjacent to the children’s areas, increase seating capacity, improve sight lines, create improved quiet areas, and bring the library into compliance with American Disability Act requirements.
