Silver Spring Library Closes its Doors and Turns a Page

When the lights were turned off for good and the doors locked for the final time at the Silver Spring Library on March 15 at 5 p.m. it meant the ending of one era, but signaled the beginning of new chapter in the long history of the library that has called 8901 Colesville Road home for 58 years.

At a special reception which led up to closing time, hundreds of long-time customers, staff and library representatives mingled with local elected officials and community leaders. Participants celebrated and reminisced about the legacy the library was leaving behind while they anticipated the opening of the new building at 900 Wayne Avenue.

See the lights off video with County Executive Leggett and his helpers from the East Silver Spring Elementary School, Anna and Madeline Seelke, that was posted by Montgomery County Public Libraries.
