Quincy Orchard Library temporarily closed

The following news item is adapted from the Quincy Orchard Library website:


The Quince Orchard Library is temporarily closed so the building can be refreshed. The book drop there is also now unavailable. We anticipate reopening the branch in Fall 2017.

A “refresh” project is a new Capital Improvement Program process approved by Montgomery County Council and the County Executive to allow library buildings to get significant and timely updates without having to close for the lengthy time it takes for a full renovation. The Library Refurbishment CIP funds programmatic, cosmetic, and service impact updates to two to three libraries every year.

While the Quince Orchard Library itself is closed, some adult programs held at the branch have been relocated temporarily to other locations as in the following list. These programs will return to the branch when the library reopens in the fall.
