The corner of Fenton and Wayne has been a whirlwhind of activity as contractors and library staff make sure the library is ready to hit the ground running on June 20.
As some of you may know, the new Silver Spring Library will include a Green Roof. The Green Roof is part of the LEED Certification requirements for sustainable buildings. MCPL Director Parker Hamilton got a chance to tour the roof this week. With the wet weather, it was a pretty cold trip, but she took the time to send us this photo. We can't wait to see what the roof will look like once those plants have had a chance to grow a bit more—and we wouldn't object to a little more sun.
In the midst of all the excitement about the new Silver Spring Library, June 1 was also the system-wide kick-off date for Summer Reading. Parents and caregivers can sign-up their children (0-12) for the Every Hero Has a Story. Teens (13-17) can sign up for "Unmasked!"

plan for Summer Reading fun!
In addition to the efforts to finish off construction details and get all the books onto the shelves, staff are also hard at work planning exciting events once the library opens. Whether you'll be at the Grand Opening or not, be sure to put a visit on your calendar. We can't wait to introduce you to your new library!
