Montgomery County Public Libraries to Reopen Kensington Park Branch

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett invites residents to celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand reopening of the newly refreshed Montgomery County Public Libraries’ (MCPL) Kensington Park Branch located at 4201 Knowles Ave. The event will be held on Saturday, April 2 beginning at 10 a.m.

The library closed on October 10, 2015 so the facility could be renovated. The improvements for the library includes a full-service elevator to provide access to the library’s lower-level meeting rooms and restrooms; redesign of the children’s area to provide an expanded space for picture books and early reading materials; new circulation and information desks; interior design upgrades such as new carpeting and paint; enhanced Wi-Fi; additional power outlets; and new technology enhancements such as a mobile device charging station, digital signage, laptops for in-house use, and a 3D printer. 

Friends of the Library, Kensington Park Chapter will provide refreshments immediately following the ceremony. A jazz ensemble will provide musical entertainment and the Montgomery County Historical Society will provide a historical display.
