Roland Park Library

When the Roland Park Library was threatened with closure, the community banded together to raise funds to expand it and keep it as part of the vibrant center of our neighborhood. The city provided matching funds and the remodeled and expanded library that you see on Roland Avenue is the product of that collaboration.

In addition to books, the library has an extensive movie selection on DVD as well as books on CD. There is a large children’s area, a young adult section, and quiet rooms for reading or study.  There are computers for public use. The library also has a meeting room that seats 25, available by prior arrangement.

A Centennial Celebration

“Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, a librarian can bring you back the right one.”  Neil Gaiman

Librarians at the Roland Park branch have been providing answers since the doors opened on June 10, 1924. On July 10, 2024, people from all over the city will gather to celebrate this “storied” institution and its dedicated staff, past and present. All are invited to attend the festivities, which will include The Greg Thompkins Quartet, a celebratory “birthday” cake, and fun activities for the kids. A special coloring page has been created to mark the event. Click below the picture to download a PDF.
