Expanded hours have started at the Chevy Chase Library, 8005 Connecticut Ave. and the Potomac Library at 10101 Glenolden Dr. Monday through Thursday these two Montgomery County Public Libraries will open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“I am pleased the hours are extended at the Chevy Chase and Potomac libraries to provide residents with more time to access the extensive programs and services offered,” said County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett. “Our libraries play a critical role as a community anchor that supports learning and connectivity to literacy and information.”

The expanded hours, recommended by Councilmember Roger Berliner, were approved by the Council in the FY2016 budget. 

“Libraries are one of our most beloved and important community assets. Yet, after several difficult budgets, we still haven’t fully restored the hours of operation for all of our county’s branches to their pre-recessionary levels,” said Berliner. “That is why I recommended that we add additional funding into our most recent county budget to accomplish this goal. While there is still more work to be done, expanding the hours at the Chevy Chase and Potomac library branches moves us one step closer to that goal.”

“We appreciate Mr. Berliner’s recommendation for this funding which was accepted by the Council,” said MCPL Director Parker Hamilton. “The expanded hours at Chevy Chase and Potomac libraries will allow the residents of those communities to more easily take advantage of all MCPL has to offer.”
