Silver Spring Library Opens with Fanfare, Large Turnout



See 'photo slider' above.

Downtown Silver Spring’s latest landmark – the new Silver Spring Library – opened on June 20 to a steady stream of 3,960 customers and visitors between noon and 6 p.m., many of whom did more than just check out the building – they checked out materials; too, 4,380 items to be exact.

The ribbon cutting ceremony drew a crowd of approximately 500 persons of all ages. As word spread around the area, the hashtag #900Wayne took 16th place in the Top 20 of Washington's Trends for Saturday, June 20.

Located at the intersection of Wayne Ave. and Fenton St. (900 Wayne Ave.), the County’s newest urban library occupies about 63,000 gross square feet on the top three floors of the approximately 90,000 gross square foot structure.

Kefa Café, a Silver Spring-based coffee house/eatery serving gourmet, organic, fair trade coffee, pastries and sandwiches, is on the first floor by the Fenton Street entrance near the escalators.

The third floor is the entry floor to the library portion of the building with access provided from both the Wayne Ave. and Fenton St. entrances.

Read more details in the news release or stop by the library and see its many features for yourself. The library is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
