Hello! Welcome to the Howard County Library!

Come to Library for Your Fall Reading

book with fall leaves It is almost officially fall and the weather is starting to reflect the season  with cooler temperatures and shorter days.  What a great time to come and visit your local library to see what we have to offer!  Many of the most popular authors put out books at this time of  year and our “new” book shelves are filling up. Reading is a perfect way to spend a fall evening.


You are invited to join Reader's Group

coffee cup and book Once you have read those new best sellers, or an old favorite, or maybe a book that’s been on the shelves for a while that you have been meaning to read, you should join us on the first Thursday evening of the month.  This is the meeting day for our adult book club, “Readers.”  We would love to have you join us.  This club is an informal book club for anyone who likes to talk about books.You can share  your thoughts about the books you have read recently or just listen to what others have to say and maybe you will add to your list of books that you want to read!  We have lively and informative discussions and almost everyone leaves with something new to read.  It is a lot of fun and all adult readers are welcome!  Our next meeting is October 5 from 6 to 7 pm.

Do you want to support the library? Join Friends of the Library

A great way to do that is to join “Friends of the Library!”  This is an organization open to anyone who is interested in the ongoing success of the library. An individual membership to join friends is $10 annually, while a family membership is $20. We also offer lifetime memberships for $200.  The purpose of Friends is to provide annual funding for the library collection, underwrite programs, such as The Summer Reading Program, Special Holiday events  and visiting author programs and to support the purchase of various items that cannot be fulfilled from the library’s operational budget.  We would love to have new members!
