Branch history

Library service to the Finksburg area began on January 28th 2009 with the opening of a 13,805 square foot branch. The Finksburg Planning and Citizens' Council played an integral role in helping the Finksburg Branch become a reality. This library was the first Green building in Carroll County. Some of the green features include: geothermal wells, a storm water management system, renewable woods, and recyclable & recycled materials. The Finksburg Branch continues its effort to promote green living through local partnerships.
