Anne Arundel County Public Library (AACPL) officials today annouced that the Annapolis Regional Library will be closed through at least Sunday, February 14, due to extensive roof leaks. The facility has been closed since Saturday.
“Last month’s blizzard caused a number of active leaks at the Annapolis Regional Library,” said AACPL CEO Skip Auld. “We are working to address the problems and hope to reopen soon to serve our customers and the community. We apologize for the inconveience.”
All programs and meetings scheduled at the Annapolis library through Sunday are canceled. The bookdrop will also be closed and all materials should be returned to one of the other 14 libraries across the county. A list of libraries can be found at www.aacpl.net/location.
To assist customers, most materials checked out from the Annapolis Regional Library with due dates between February 6 and February 13 will now be due by March 18. No fines will be charged for late returns of matierals with the exception of orange banded (OCLC) materials. These items, from the library’s Interlibrary Loan program, must be returned to one of the library’s 14 other locations by the originala due date.
Additionally, customer access to Marina, the online catalog of materials owned by all the public libraries in Maryland, also called Interlibrary Loan, is unavailable through Friday, February 12. Customers will not be able to access Marina during this time as the AACPL Interlibrary Loan program is run out of the Annapolis Regional Library.
