This project provides for a new library in the Clarksburg area. The new facility will be located at Clarksburg Square Road, Clarksburg, MD 20871.

A new library is necessary in this area due to the present and projected population density for the Clarksburg area. The Clarksburg Town Center is envisioned to include a mix of housing, commercial, retail, recreation, and civic uses with the Clarksburg Historic District as the focal point.

The Department's Strategic Facilities Plan (1998 - 2003) recognized the need for library services in the Clarksburg area, including a needs assessment completed in 2001.The Department confirms that the Clarksburg area continues to meet the criteria for a new facility, as outlined in the Department's Facilities Plan 2013-2016.

The Clarksburg Library will be responsible for providing a full range of public library services to the Clarksburg community. The following services and materials will be provided: reference services; information services and professional guidance in accessing material for children and adults; a broad-based circulating collection on a wide variety of subjects; a sizable selection of popular print and non-print materials; sources to supplement the school curriculum from early childhood education through the high school level; linkage to the library system electronic databases and the internet as a whole through the SIRSI integrated library system (ILS); referrals to other sources of information; programming activities to supplement and enrich other services are required; and a public meeting room to meet programming needs and for community use.

The new library will be constructed in accordance with the requirements for County’s most recent library projects. The public library offers free and equal access to services and resources to assist the people of Montgomery County in finding ideas and information to sustain and enrich their lives.

The library will serve as the community connection hub to ideas, learning, and the exchange of information. It will improve the community through facilitating knowledge creation, informing the community, and inspiring lifelong learning and collaboration.
