Wheaton Library to Close on March 13

wheaton libraryMontgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) is planning to officially close the Wheaton branch, 11701 Georgia Avenue, in a public ceremony on March 13.

You are invited to the 5 p.m. event, which will include light refreshments and brief remarks from officials before County Executive Ike Leggett formally shuts the facility.

The library is closing so that construction can begin on the new combined Wheaton Library and Community Recreation Center, which is expected to open in the summer/fall of 2018. The new facility is being built at the site of the existing library.

For more information, visit the MCPL website.

    How do they plan to have residents of Hermitage Ave. get to their homes if they close off the top of the street???? That has to be a joke. I used to live on Hermitage and yeah people cut through to miss the light, but this is going to be totally unreal. Who was the genius who thought this up and WHY did the County Council approve it? Why should the residents of Hermitage Ave have to use Arcola to get home. That’s just not fair.

      Michael J. I’m not sure what you mean. The County Council does what it wants so no one is really part of the process
