Mount Airy Branch Library

705 Ridge Avenue
Mount Airy, MD 21771



In 1965, the Carroll Commissioners gave the town of Mt. Airy permission to open a community library there, with the provision that the town raise $3,000 to refurbish and furnish a room above the town office. Four months later, after donations and fund-raising events such as a benefit shoot at the Rod and Gun Club, a teenage dance, and a book sale, the library opened. In 1974 the Mt. Airy Community Branch moved to the former American Grocery Building, and in 1993 a new full-service Mount Airy Branch Library opened on Ridge Road.
