History of the Library
The Greenbelt Branch Library, a part of the Prince George's County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) since 1955, opened its doors in 1939 in two classrooms in Center School. The current building at 11 Crescent Road was opened in 1970 and recently re-opened after a partial renovation in late November 2010. The collection includes books, magazines, newspapers, business resources, compact discs, recorded books, DVDs, and internet access. Customers can renew books either over the telephone or from the library website.
Programs & Activities
Branch staff provide a variety of programs including weekly story times, and monthly book discussion groups; one for children, and another for adults. Special programs are also offered throughout the year, such as the Teddy Bear's Picnic and an adult poetry program in April. Each summer, the branch participates in the ATTP summer reading program for all ages, kids to adults.
The Tugwell Room, a special reference collection on city / urban planning, cooperatives, Greenbelt towns, and the city of Greenbelt history, is a resource for students, visiting planners, and community members. The Friends of the Greenbelt Library, a volunteer organization, manages the Novel Endings Book Store, supports library programs, raises funds for branch projects and equipment, and serves as advocates for the library.
For a fee, a meeting room and smaller conference room can be booked through the library system's central booking office at 301-699-3500, or on library website. For more information on any Greenbelt Library services, call 301-345-5800 and TTY 301-808-2061.
