The decision about where the new Calvert Library Twin Beaches Branch will be located has experienced another jog in the process. To be able to qualify for a state capital grant, the library was told that either the library or the county needed to own the land on which the library would be built. During the period that the towns could ask questions in advance of the March 28 presentation, one of the towns asked a question about an aspect of land ownership. Initially, it was believed that the land could revert to the municipality once there was no longer a functioning library on it. It has since been determined that the land will NOT revert.
Because the answer was a significant change, Library Director Carrie Plymire asked both mayors if they needed additional time to speak with their town councils. Chesapeake Beach did ask for an extension to the deadline for proposals. The library has moved the deadline and public presentation to Monday, April 16, 2018 at 2:00 pm in meeting rooms 2 and 3 of Calvert Library Prince Frederick.
