The Mount Airy Branch Library will be closed for one month beginning Monday as it undergoes an interior renovation.

During the closure, the library will offer limited service of pick up of holds in the large meeting room on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2 to 5 p.m.

The renovation project, which started Jan. 6, will include a new layout with additional study areas, more flexible meeting spaces, and a combined information and checkout desk.

Improvements to the library are being funded through the Library Capital Grant Program, Division of Library Development and Services, Maryland State Department of Education, and matching funds from the Carroll County Commissioners.

The cost of the renovation is $314,000, split between the state and county, Carroll County Public Library communications manager Lisa Picker said.
