Branch History

In 1965, the Carroll County Commissioners gave the town of Mt. Airy permission to open a community library, with the provision that the town raise $3,000 to refurbish and furnish a room above the town office. Four months later, after donations and fund-raising events such as a benefit shoot at the Rod and Gun Club, a dance for teens, and a book sale, the library opened. In 1974 the Mt. Airy Community Branch moved to the former American Grocery Building, and in 1993 a new full-service Mount Airy Branch opened on Ridge Avenue.

Renovation to the Mt. Airy Branch began in 2012. Plans include repavement of the driveway, and reworking of the sidewalk to improve grade and accessibility.
