Reopening sign at Aspen Hill Library
The wait is over. Aspen Hill Library reopens Saturday, July 15. We are indeed excited that we are able to bring this wonderful news to all within the Aspen Hill community, particularly around this time of the year when the library is looked upon as the “go to” place for all who live and work in the area. Here is the official announcement of the reopening as given by the Public Information Office of the Montgomery County Government in a press release dated June 30, 2017.

County Executive Ike Leggett invites residents to a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, July 15, beginning at 10 AM to celebrate the grand reopening of the newly refreshed Montgomery County Public Libraries’ Aspen Hill branch, located at 4407 Aspen Hill Rd in Rockville.

The refresh for the library includes new carpeting throughout the library, redesigned public restrooms to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, a new circulation and information desk, redesigned children’s area with additional seating, a new teen area with cafĂ© seating, five collaboration rooms, new furniture and shelving, interior and exterior painting, a new accessible book drop, a new information computer monitor, and light fixtures with high efficiency LED fixtures.

The Aspen Hill Chapter of the Friends of the Library will serve refreshments immediately following the ceremony. Musical entertainment will be provided by a youth finalist from "MoCo’s Got Talent.”

The Aspen Hill staff who have been placed at the impacted libraries during the refresh phase have all returned to the library and have been diligently preparing the library for this momentous re-opening. All our previous blog pieces have given a preview of what has taken place along this refresh journey, and we are excited that you the public will now have the opportunity to not only view it on our opening day, but to enjoy it as part of the Aspen Hill community.
