Kensington Park Library Reopens March 28
Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett is inviting residents to celebrate the grand reopening of Montgomery County Libraries (MCPL) Kensington Park branch with a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for April 2 at 10 a.m. at 4201 Knowles Avenue.
The library was closed October 10, 2015 to undergo a refresh and will reopen for patrons Monday, March 28 at 10 a.m. The refresh includes the following:
- a full-service elevator to provide access to the library’s lower-level meeting rooms and restrooms;
- redesign of the children’s area to provide an expanded space for picture books and early reading materials;
- new circulation and information desks; interior design upgrades such as new carpeting and paint; enhanced Wi-Fi;
- additional power outlets; and new technology enhancements such as a mobile device charging station, digital signage, laptops for in-house use, and a 3D printer.
The Kensington Park Chapter of the Friends of the Library will provide refreshments and a jazz ensemble will play live music following the ceremony. The history of the Kensington Park Library prepared by the Montgomery County Historical Society will be on display.
