New Hyattsville Library to Open Late Summer
We learned two important things when doing a curbside pickup at the Hyattsville Branch Library earlier this week: (1) The current (temporary) location will be closing next Saturday (5/29); and the new location is slated to open up towards the end of summer (so late August/early September). Exciting!
PGCMLS’ Curbside Pickup is Back!

At times like this, books are a special refuge for us. They take us to places beyond our backyard, all without lifting a foot. Which is why I was delighted to learn that despite our libraries being physically closed, you can still access the PGCMLS library virtually. This includes e-books, audiobooks, digital comics, music, movies, TV and educational resources. The Library’s Digital Suite and 85+ online resources are available 24/7.
